Families of Freedom exists to provide more than $100 million in postsecondary education assistance to an entire generation of financially needy dependents of those who died or were permanently disabled due to the attacks on 9/11. This program has already provided millions of dollars in support for students who attended high school and college at this time. We will continue to provide for all affected families through the year 2030.
The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund was established with the foresight that the loss of a primary family provider on 9/11 would put the educational futures of thousands of students in jeopardy. For those dependents in financial need, postsecondary education remains within reach thanks to Families of Freedom and the hundreds of charitable organizations and individuals that donate their time and resources to help.
