"Knowledge is a Powerful Thing"
VACP College Scholarship Program
The Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police & Foundation acknowledges the support police officers give their communities. In recognition of this, we offer the VACP College Scholarship Program for dependent children of active police officers employed in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
This is a needs-based partial scholarship, and the amount of the scholarship award varies. This scholarship is not available to dependent children of sheriff’s offices, federal law enforcement agencies, or civilian personnel working in police agencies.
For more information, see the VACP College Scholarship Page.
VACLEA College Scholarship Program
The Virginia Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (VACLEA) – an affiliate organization of the VACP – also has a college scholarship program, which prioritizes dependents of employees of security or police departments of VACLEA-member institutions.
Awards of up to $1,000 will be made to selected applicants and recipients will be chosen based on need and merit.
For more information, see the VACLEA College Scholarship Program page.
