College Scholarship for Survivors of Victims of Terrorist Attacks

A $3 million Families for Freedom Scholarship has been created by Indianapolis based Lumina Foundation for Education to aid undergraduate education of financially needy survivors (spouses and children) of those who perished or were disabled in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This includes families of airplane crew and passengers, World Trade Center and Pentagon workers and visitors and relief workers. This program will extend to currently enrolled undergraduate students as well as future students. Assistance is planned to begin as early as January 2002. These scholarships are being offered in partnership with the Citizens Scholarship Foundation of America, which will take applications and donations and manage the money.
