2022 Scholarship Recipients
As another way of preserving the legacies of the fallen—and supporting their family and coworker survivors—every year we award a number of $1,000 college scholarships. We give first priority to the descendants of fallen officers, secondly to the descendants of living officers, and thirdly to students intending to, or already pursuing enforcement-related degrees.
Congratulations to our 2022 College Scholarship recipients. We wish them good luck in their educational pursuits.
