The Dolores Boschert Fire Academy Scholarship was created to honor the memory of Dolores “Dolo” Boschert who passed away on May 24, 2022 at the age of 23. Dolores was working as a paramedic at Christian Hospital and seeking a job as a firefighter. Dolores graduated from the Fire Academy in 2021 as part of class 113. She loved the first responder field and had a passion for it that was unmatched. From delivering babies to saving lives, she couldn’t contain her excitement and joy at helping people and being the best in her field. She knew how to light up a room and enjoy life like it was one big party.
A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded in Dolores’ memory to be used towards tuition at the St. Louis County Fire Academy. The scholarship payment will be made directly to the St. Louis County Fire Academy in the recipient’s name. To be considered for the scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:
Applicants must submit a typed document including name, EMT-P License number, class cycle you wish to attend and essay of 300-500 words on plain paper in 12 pt font and double-spaced. Please submit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Fire Academy Scholarship Application” as the subject line. Please attach two reference letters to the email or have the referral letters separately emailed with your name as the subject line.
The scholarship selections will be made by the Boschert family and will be given to people that have a true passion for being a firefighter and first responder as well as having a love for life, bringing positivity into the world, and being a leader in the way they go about their career and life. Recipients will be notified via email no later than three weeks prior to the beginning of each class cycle.
