REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University is offering new scholarships for Carr and Camp Fire survivors.

This program awards students with up to $60,000 over four years.

Dean of Advancement Ken White said the university president wanted to give back after seeing the destruction from the two fires.

"Simpson was deeply involved in the response to the Carr Fire," White said. "We served as an emergency evacuation center, so we were witnessing first hand the tragedy itself and the implications to the community."

The university will also match up to $3,000 per year for anyone who wants to fund a student.
