Founded in 2018, Federal Resources' Warrior's Legacy Scholarship was created to support the families of those who protect us all, and to give back to those who put their lives on the line for us each and every day. There is no way to fully repay someone for their service and bravery in defending our country and our freedoms, but as a way of showing our support and gratitude for these dedicated individuals, FR will award $5,000 for one year to a college bound high school senior or currently enrolled college student who meets the requirements of the scholarship. We believe in continuing to support today's youth and instill the same values in them that our service members embody.
To apply participants are asked to write an essay of 500+ words sharing their story by answering the below essay question.
Describe what you think are the core characteristics that a service member or first responder embodies. If awarded the Warrior's Legacy Scholarship, how do you intend to embody those same characteristics in your everyday life? In your future education and career goals?
FR's Scholarship Committee will review all completed applications and award the 2019 Warrior's Legacy Scholarship to one individual. The scholarship funds will be issued in the form of a check and will be made out to the student's accredited institution to be applied towards school related costs to include: tuition, school supplies or books.
Chase is a 2017 graduate of Ronald Reagan High School and currently attends Rice University. He serves as an EMT while in an undergraduate program at the university and has over 700 hours of service with Rice Emergency Medical Services, where he continues to serve until he completes his degree. Upon graduation, Chase plans to join the Air Force in the footsteps of his father and serve in our nation's military as a doctor.
"As I grew older, I found myself drawn to the higher calling of contributing selflessly to the community... With my father's 24 years of military service and my mother's countless sacrifices along the way, I feel like I'm part of a proud heritage of service before self. I saw this in my two grandfathers, who also served in the Air Force, and in my uncle, who was an Air Force Doctor. It's in my blood, it's the family business. It's who I am and who I want to be."
My name is Chase Hinman. I am the youngest in a family of five, with two incredibly inspirational older brothers, and two wonderfully supportive parents. I moved around a lot when I was young as my father was in the Air Force, and eventually graduated high school in San Antonio, Texas. Afterwards, I moved on to Rice University, where I will soon begin my junior year. At Rice, I am majoring in Philosophy and Kinesiology, and I work on campus as a first responder for Rice's collegiate EMS service. Upon graduation, I plan to attend medical school, hoping to one day be a doctor in the Air Force!
