Scholarship for Children of Active Duty Police Officers, Firefighters and Paramedics

Police officers, firefighters and paramedics are often the first responders to an accident scene and put themselves at risk to help others that have been injured. Their responsiveness to emergency situations can rescue people from further harm and provide live saving medical treatment. Most often the people that are helped by first responders do not get a chance to thank them for their assistance when it is needed most. That is why personal injury lawyer Douglas D. Brannon and the Brannon Law Firm would like to say “thank you” by offering a $1,500 scholarship to the child of an active duty police officer, firefighter or paramedic.

Applicants are asked to write a 500+ word essay on what their parents’ job has taught them and how they are going to apply it in their own life.

To be eligible, an applicant must:

– Be graduating high school in 2017 or actively enrolled in an accredited technical school, college or university in the U.S.
– Have a biological or step parent, who at the time of application, is an active duty police officer, firefighter and/or paramedic.
– Must be an Ohio resident.
– Submit a 500+ word essay

To apply, you must submit:

– 500+ word essay, relating to the prompt.
– Provide your first and last name, email address, home address, and phone number listed at the beginning of the essay.
– Parent’s full name, associated police / fire / paramedic department and badge number listed at the beginning of the essay.
– A copy of the applicants proof of acceptance, transcript or any form of attendance verification at an accredited technical school, college or university.

Please submit all entries to

Submission Deadline: May 1st, 2017
The lawyers at the Brannon Law Firm will then select the top essay that best shows how a parent’s job can influence their child to make positive decisions in their own life.
