The FSU-NYC September 11 Scholarship Fund was established on September 17, 2001 to help send qualified children of victims who died in the September 11 attacks to FSU, with a preference for children of police officers, firefighters or other persons in uniform. However, in recent years we have broadened the pool of candidates to include all children and family members of NYC Firefighters and Police Officers in honor of their heroics on September 11. In 2011, we awarded Manhattan Xavier High School graduate Patrick Steffens the first FSU-NYC September 11 scholarship.
Our goal is to provide a scholarship to a student for the 2016-2017 academic school year. We ask you to please help us meet our goal. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated by our Club, but even more, appreciated by the scholarship recipient. Contributions before December 31, 2015 qualify for a 2015 tax deduction, and all money received will be deposited in our Scholarship Fund account and used exclusively for the scholarship. We will keep contributors informed about the Fund and also about the progress of the recipients.
To make a donation, or if you have any further questions about the FSU-NYC September 11 Scholarship Fund, please contact our Philanthropy and Scholarship Chair, Colby Valentine (general@NYCnoles.com).
