First responders scholarships announced

The College Board announced a new fund Wednesday to provide scholarships for first responders and their children, prompted by events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing and the Texas fertilizer plant explosion.

The scholarship will be awarded each year to a student who performs well on the ­College Board’s PSAT/NMSQT and SAT assessments and who has demonstrated civic engagement and leadership in his or her community.
