NFPA believes that timing is propitious for us to take a closer look at the overall process and to review and revamp the program in a way to make it more robust, increasing awareness and participation. We have decided to put the 2015 NFPA Fire Safety Educational Memorial Fund Scholarship Program ON HOLD while we evaluate. Our intent is to launch a new and improved program of support in the future. We will continue to keep you informed on the status of the program.

The 2012/2013 Charles Morgan Scholarship has been awarded to Mr. Tyler Reid, Oklahoma State University. Tyler is in the Fire Protection and Safety Technology (FPST) program at the University and will graduate in December 2013. During the academic year, his time is solely devoted to his studies. However, over the past few years, his summer break has afforded him the opportunity to work at Marathon Oil as an industrial hygiene intern and at Lockheed Martin as a safety intern. Both of these internships have provided him with hands on experience for his future endeavors. Tyler emphasized that the scholarship has reduced the financial burden which most students face and he is very appreciative of NFPA for providing assistance in pursuing his education in FPST. His future plans include furthering his education by pursuing a career in the energy field and plans to obtain a masters degree in occupational safety and industrial hygiene along with becoming a Certified Safety Professional and Certified Industrial Hygienist.
