We need you. Because 3,000 students still need us.
On September 11, 2001, the unthinkable happened, and our scholarship was established to protect the dreams of students whose families were directly impacted. But today, because of unforeseen and growing illnesses caused by the rescue effort, many more students need our help—and yours.
Almost 20 Years Ago, We Made a Promise.
Your Support Helps Us Keep It.
Since 2001, we’ve awarded $187.4 million to 3,829 children whose parent was lost or severely affected by the 9/11 attack and rescue mission. We’re proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish together. But 3,000 more students still need our support.
It’s More Than a Fund. It’s a Family.
If I hadn’t received this scholarship, there is no telling exactly where I would be. But I do know this: I would not have graduated Summa Cum Laude from Clemson University with an amazing education, work experience, and connections. This scholarship allowed me to focus on who I was becoming, both personally and professionally, instead of the insurmountable student loans that typically accompany a college education. Thank you all for your generosity. You have changed my life.
