VOLUNTEER TODAY & TAP INTO OUR TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM:
The Borough has developed the Franklin Lakes Fire Department Tuition Assistance Program as an incentive for students to serve and volunteer for the fire department. This program will provide tuition reimbursement to Student-Volunteers for their volunteer service in the Borough, for up to one hundred twenty (120) lifetime credit hours. The Franklin Lakes program credit hours must be obtained from a New Jersey State Department of Education accredited college or university. Any/all previous lifetime credits earned at or through any college/university will count towards the one hundred twenty (120) lifetime credit hour limit. The Borough does not reimburse retroactively for previously earned credits.
In exchange for the fulfillment of established service requirements with the Franklin Lakes Fire Department, Student-Volunteers enrolled as full-time or part-time students are eligible for tuition reimbursement based upon a sliding scale of grade point average (“GPA”) as specified in the full administrative guide. There is no restriction as to the type of academic coursework the Student-Volunteer chooses to pursue.
