The Alan Patrick Sondej Memorial Scholarship Fund for Families of Fallen Firefighters is the ﬁrst NFFF scholarship fund that is designed to provide scholarships that satisfy the full four year cost of college tuition, books and, where possible, room and board.
The scholarship awards made by the Al Sondej fund will be issued on a bi-annual basis, meaning that every other year, a new freshman will receive a four-year commitment. Awards are based on an evaluation of academic achievement and need. In order to get onto a bi-annual cycle beginning with the 2018 – 2019 academic year, the Al Sondej fund awarded a four-year scholarship to a freshman and a two-year scholarship to a junior.
The next four-year scholarship will be awarded in the Spring 2020 to a freshman.
