In 1996, the ESA (formerly NBFAA) launched the Youth Scholarship Program. The program was created to promote goodwill among the electronic systems industry and police and fire officials by providing college scholarship awards to their deserving sons or daughters.
Thousands of dollars have been given to students attending higher education institutions across our country. In fact, more than $300,000 has been given out by the participating states and ESA.
The first place winner of the Louisiana's program is automatically considered for the national ESA Youth Scholarship Program awards.
Louisiana's scholarship program awards $1,000 to the first place winner and $500 to the second place winner. The first place winner of the national ESA Youth Scholarship Program receives $10,000 to put towards their college education, the second place award winner receives $5,000, third place is $3,500 and fourth place is $1,500.
Awards are based on a combination of academic achievement, national test scores, extracurricular participation and the essay. In addition to completing the application and submitting the appropriate documentation, each student must write an essay explaining "What it means to me to have my parent or guardian involved in securing our community."
