CCFR accepting apps for scholarships

Capital City Fire and Rescue is taking applications for openings and for two vacancies and for an eligibility list for its scholarship program. 

The CCFR scholarship program is open to Alaska residents planning to attend University of Alaska Southeast. 

CCFR awards 13 scholarships for each semester. Scholarships are renewable each semester for up to two years of study provided the student is fulfilling all the requirements of the program. This scholarship program requires participants to be live-in firefighters with CCFR. 

To obtain a copy of the application you may go to www.ccfr.net or www.juneau.org/ccfr/index.php. Applications must be postmarked by Dec. 12.

A panel of judges will select the winners based on each student’s future potential to contribute their knowledge and talents in Alaska. In addition, each student’s service to his or her community and school, and school achievements will be taken into consideration. Applicants selected from the review process will be invited to participate in interviews Dec. 19-21.  Interviews may be done via teleconference.

Along with the application form, students are asked to include in their scholarship packages a letter of application, an official high school and/or college transcript, letters of recommendation, a criminal background check, a driving record, media release form, and a health screening form. It is important that all these be submitted with the application.

For more information about the program, contact Division Chief Beth Weldon, scholarship coordinator, at 907-586-0259.
