Santa Monica resident Hanna Hone, 21, has been selected to receive an ICMA-RC Public Employee Memorial Scholarship (ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship). The ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship Fund Board of Directors presented 36 scholarships for the 2015-16 academic year to recipients from 17 different states. Hone will attend the University of California, Davis.
ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarships are presented annually to surviving children and spouses of firefighters, police officers, and other public employees who have died in the line of duty. Jack Hone died in the line of duty while serving the Santa Monica Fire Department.
“The ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship awards program was established in 2001 to honor the memory of public servants such as Mr. Hone who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty,” said ICMA-RC President and CEO and President of the ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship Fund Bob Schultze. “We are pleased to recognize the accomplishments of Ms. Hone with an ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship to help further her education during the 2015-2016 academic year.”
Individuals are eligible to apply for the ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship if they are the child or spouse of a local or state government employee who has died in the line of duty and planning to study full-time at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or vocational-technical school. Applicants are selected based on factors such as financial need, academic record, demonstrated leadership in school and community activities, honors, and work experience.
Since the program’s inception, more than 250 students have received more than $950,000 in scholarship awards.
The fund is a public charity founded by ICMA-RC in 2001. Financial support for the scholarship is provided by individuals, foundations, organizations and ICMA-RC. Further information on making a donation and the application for future scholarships can be found at www.vantagescholar.org.
