The FOP has a new benefit for members, their spouses, children, and grandchildren. The FOP has partnered with Eastern Gateway Community College and is offering free tuition which includes fees and books. This means you can earn an associates degree for free. Please check out the website that is attached in this link. The FOP FaceBook page has the information so it can be shared. The Ohio State FOP Lodge began this partnership a little over a year ago and it has received praise from their members and families.
The National FOP has joined that partnership and will soon have a link/website with all the information. However, you may still apply to the college for the Fall second start date is October 17th. The deadline to apply is October 12th. The Spring 1st start date is January 17th with registration due by January 10th.
There are some requirements and documentation that will have to be followed/submitted in order to receive this great benefit.
