Josephine Heimer Scholarship

Scholarship History

The Josephine Heimer Scholarship was established in March 2017 through Josephine Heimer's bequest to provide merit-based scholarships for undergraduate students in the Department of Fire Protection Engineering. Josephine Heimer was employed by the Grumman Aircraft Corp. as an electrical technician and office secretary during World War II, a true "Rosie the Riveter." Jo was an active member of the Maryland State Fireman's Association, where her late husband, Floyd Heimer, was recognized in their Hall of Fame.
