Children of Fallen Heroes Scholarship Act
This is a scholarship which began in the 2018-2019 award year. It is for a student who is Pell eligible and whose parent or guardian died in the line of duty while performing as a public safety officer.
In order to qualify a student must be Pell eligible and have a calculated estimated family contribution (EFC) that is derived from the free application for federal student aid (FAFSA). If a student meets the requirements, the student EFC will be calculated at zero which would allow for the maximum Pell grant based of his or her enrollment and cost of attendance.
Please contact the financial aid office for further information at 610-861-5510.
In addition to our other scholarship offerings, you may also be eligible for private scholarships or grants from an outside organization or agency. Some sources to explore are employers, unions, professional organizations, and community and special interest groups.
