Welcome

Welcome to the LSFA’s “Safer” Tuition Reimbursement Grant website, where you can learn more about applying for college tuition reimbursement of up to $8,000 (for a 2-year degree) or $16,000 (for a 4-year degree) by choosing to serve your community and the State of Louisiana by signing up to become a volunteer fireman after graduation.

The “Safer” Tuition Reimbursement grant is hosted by the Louisiana State Fireman’s Association (LSFA), in conjunction with the Louisiana State Fire Marshal (OSFM).

Bookmark this site or follow us at Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook. You can also get involved by joining the LSFA’s Safer Tuition Reimbursement Grant Facebook Group, where we encourage you to share your own stories of volunteerism, photos of fire scenes, or get involved on our message boards.

85% of Firefighters in the State of Louisiana are Volunteers

“The purpose of the grant program is to increase public awareness of the role and importance of emergency services and to educate the public as to the importance of volunteerism for supporting and maintaining emergency services while bolstering the ranks of both paid professional and volunteer professional fire and emergency service workers.”
