(UNDATED) - 13 Indiana students who volunteer in public safety organizations will receive Secure Indiana Scholarships from the Indiana Homeland Security Foundation including a Spencer resident.

Tyler Mauder, of Spencer, is seeking a degree at Vincennes University in Fire Science and Homeland Security. He volunteers at the Owen Valley Fire Department.

A total of $26,000 will be awarded for their 2017-18 college education.

Each student receiving a scholarship attends an Indiana college, is pursuing a degree in a safety- or health-related major and has volunteer experience at a public safety organization such as a police or fire department, emergency medical service or emergency management agency. The funding for these scholarships was provided through purchases of "Secure Indiana" license plates.

"By donating to the Indiana Homeland Security Foundation, people are doing two important things: They are helping save lives with funds that buy life-saving equipment at the local level, and they are improving the lives of amazing college students, by helping them with scholarships," said Steve Cain, chair of the Indiana Homeland Security Foundation Board. "The Foundation is honored to provide scholarships to students who consider safety and the condition of others a top priority."
