GLS's goal is to help the people who tried to save our friends. GLS will grant scholarships to the University of Michigan for students in need of financial assistance who have a family member that is a firefighter, police officer or emergency medical technician ("EMT") or was lost in the World Trade Center attack. The GLS Memorial Fund has established and grown its endowment at the University of Michigan to over $800,000 allowing us to grant two four-year Dean's Merit Scholarships worth over $60,000 each. In order to be considered for the scholarship, a student must first meet the above mentioned family requirements and then be accepted to the University of Michigan through the regular admissions process. For more information on the qualifications for the scholarship, please contact us if you would like more information.
