Nassau County has developed a partnership with Nassau Community College to provide a scholarship as an incentive for people to serve in volunteer emergency services. It is an innovative program available for full and part-time students entering NCC.
Volunteers under the scholarship program will be eligible to have tuition paid while maintaining their membership as an active member in good standing in one of Nassau County’s volunteer fire companies or fire department EMS providers.
There is no limitation as to the academic program the recruit can enter at the NCC campus.
A student volunteer must maintain required activity and training levels as well as minimum academic standards during their course of study. A student must also commit to a post-education service obligation of one year for each year of scholarship received.
Applicants interested in the S.A.F.E.R grant must meet the admissions requirements set for by Nassau Community College. Apply for NCC Admissions
