First Aid Scholarship Available to Sussex Students

The Hardyston Township First Aid Squad (HTFAS) was a non-profit, volunteer organization that served the residents of Hardyston, New Jersey since 1967. The volunteers who joined HTFAS selflessly volunteered their personal time for the welfare of the community – service before self. At no cost, emergency first aid and ambulance services were provided to Hardyston 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year long.

The Hardyston Township First Aid Squad Scholarship Fund honors a graduating high school senior of Hardyston or the greater Hardyston area including Stockholm, Hamburg, Oak Ridge, Ogdensburg, Glenwood, Vernon, Wantage, Franklin, Sparta and Sussex. The student will be attending a four year college/university within the United States as a first time incoming freshman. In addition to strong academic performance (GPA of 3.0 or better) the recipient will have demonstrated a significant first response commitment to serving their community and a willingness to help others in whatever way they can, service before self – whether it be EMS, Fire, or other volunteer emergency first response agency.

The scholarship will provide a $2,500 award to an accredited institution of higher learning to support the recipient at that school. Scholarship award will be made payable to the educational institution for further credit to the student’s account. If two students are selected, the individual award to each student will be $1,250 each. Interested students should complete and submit the attached application.
