About the First Responder Scholarship
Our team at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates knows the invaluable roles first responders play in keeping our community safe and helping our residents thrive. We want to hear from the families of first responders about how those people have impacted their life directly.
“We take immense pride in supporting first responders in their community, and we want to shine a light on the impact they make from their jobs,” said Salvatore Aspromonte, one of the founding partners of the firm. “Our goal is to help reciprocate the good that first responders do by contributing scholarship funds to one of their loved ones.”
First responders put their lives on the line every day to help others. We want to find a deserving candidate who can put the giving, selfless spirit of these brave people into words.
For an application to be considered, candidates must:
- Be accepted or enrolled in an accredited college, university or graduate school

- Submit an essay that falls within the criteria listed below
