Our mission is to find and grant scholarships to dedicated individuals who aspire to go to school to train to serve their communities as nurses or emergency responders. To be considered for a TLCF Scholarship, student applicants must be a Minnesota resident and enrolled in an undergraduate program in an accredited College or University in one of these three programs: fire science, paramedics or nursing.
TLCF Memorial Scholarships are awarded annually to both traditional and non-traditional students who demonstrate initiative, leadership and service to their community. They are committed to completing their program and have drive, energy, and enthusiasm for their work.
The TLCF Scholarship committee uses personal statements and/or personal interviews, recommendations from instructors or program directors, and other individuals not related to the potential awardees in which to base their decisions. A minimum of 4 TLCF, Inc. Memorial Scholarships are awarded each year. The amount of the scholarship award is $750. More Scholarships may be awarded based upon available funds. Scholarship awards may be used for cost of attendance expenses.
Student applicants will be notified by phone of their scholarship award. In order to receive payment, a verification of enrollment must be on file in the TLCF office, whereupon TLCF will issue a check for one-half of the scholarship award. The second half of the award will be paid after the first semester and upon receipt of a transcript showing satisfactory academic progress in the student recipient’s program of study.
Student awardees who have already completed one or more semesters of their program and have submitted a transcript showing satisfactory academic progress and a Verification of Enrollment at the time of application will be issued a check for the full amount of the scholarship award after notification.
Our scholarship programs are for undergraduate study only. A student may not receive more than one TLCF scholarship award in any one academic year. It is the responsibility of the student to follow up on all matters relating to his or her scholarship award including reporting the TLCF scholarship award to the school's financial aid office.
