The MissionSquare Retirement Memorial Scholarship Fund honors education, health care, not-for-profit, public safety, and other local and state government employees who died while in service to their communities. Founded in 2001, the fund provides financial assistance to the surviving spouses and children of those employees who died in the line of duty who are planning to attend an accredited two-year community college, four-year accredited university, or vocational school full-time.
The MissionSquare Scholarship Fund is a Section 501(c) (3) public charity. Since its inception, the fund has raised over $1.4 million and has awarded hundreds of scholarships to recipients across the nation.
The fund's Board of Directors manages and oversees the eligibility and award selection process. Scholarships are managed and administered through Scholarship America, National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), and the Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS).
