The Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering anyone affected by a burn injury through peer support, education, and advocacy. For more than thirty-five years the society has partnered with survivors, families, healthcare professionals, burn centers, and the fire industry to support recovery, improve the quality of burn care, and prevent burn injury.
To that end, the society is accepting applications for its 2017-18 Phoenix Education Grant program. Through the annual program, the society provides scholarships to burn survivors who are attending college or a technical school.
To be eligible, applicants must be a burn survivor; a high school senior, in possession of GED, or currently enrolled in a college, university, or trade school; demonstrate academic achievement as shown by grades and scores on standardized tests or ability in a trade or craft; and have applied and been accepted to an accredited two-year college, four-year college/university, or trade/vocational school.
