USSSA Foundation's 9/11 Scholarship

The Trustees of the Foundation of the United States Secret Service Association are pleased to announce the Secret Service September 11th Scholarship Program.

September 11, 2001, was a date of historic importance to our nation and the Secret Service. Several hundred Secret Service personnel risked all to perform the Secret Service mission and keep our nation safe. It has been well documented that those who participated in the response or the recovery efforts to the 9/11 attacks in New York, Shanksville, PA, and the Pentagon were exposed to several toxins.

As of 2021, according to the National Institute of Health, cancer rates among responders in New York alone were 1000 times greater than the rest of the New York City population, with an expectation that the rate will continue to climb. (

This scholarship program was initiated in order to support the children and grandchildren of those 9/11 USSS responders whose life expectancy has been diminished due to their exposure during their service to our nation.

The USSSA Member must have maintained USSSA membership for at least one consecutive year immediately prior to the application deadline.
