(February 5, 2021) As it has in past years, the Killingworth Ambulance Association will offer scholarships this spring to graduating seniors enrolled in private or public high schools.

Candidates must be residents of Killingworth and plan on continuing their education at a two-or-four-year academic institution. They should also meet the follow criteria: 1) Major in the medical, emergency services (fire, police, etc.) or other allied fields; 2) engage in community service and 3) maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher in their high-school careers.

Applications are available at Haddam-Killingworth, Mercy and Xavier High Schools and can be found in the guidance departments. Or they can be found here by clicking on the highlighted word.

Completed applications must be postmarked no later than Friday, April 21, with certificates of scholarships awarded in June.

The KAA has awarded 15 scholarships over the past four years, including eight in the last two. Haddam-Killingworth High School graduates Olivia Herrmann and Victoria DeLuca were the 2020 recipients.

Herrmann attends Clemson University and DeLuca is a student at Southern Connecticut State University. The two continued a recent run of young women as recipients, with all eight scholarships the past two years awarded to females.
