Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships - Through the efforts of our volunteer members Hillside has been able to fund three $2,500 scholarships to graduating High School seniors who make a commitment to attend an accredited college, university, school of nursing, or business or trade school.  Applicants must reside within Hillside Hose Company primary coverage area.  You can learn more about this program and print out application documents Here - pdf  (2024).Applicants, high school educators and guidance counselors may access our information letter Here pdf (2024).

How the program works - Each year, members of the volunteer fire company serve on the Scholarship Committee.  They make sure that all of the documents are updated, provide scholarship information to area schools and organizations, and retain volunteer panelists to assess and score the applications.  These scores are used to determine scholarship awards.
