RE: 2020 Carl Moller Scholarship Program (New Scholarship Program)
At the April 2020 CPCA EXPO, the Connecticut Police Foundation will award $1,000 college scholarships to five deserving high school students in Connecticut who want to pursue a career in law enforcement.
We would like you to participate actively in the process of selecting the winners. We are asking you to:
1. Announce the scholarship program in your police department and in your school district.
2. Post details of the scholarship program on your department or school bulletin board or email to members of your department. The information can be downloaded from the CPCA website, www.cpcanet.org.
3. Police Chiefs - Collect, review, and evaluate scholarship applications from the students in your town, evaluate them, and recommend the most deserving applicant (one only) from your jurisdiction.
4. Forward the application you select to the Awards Committee by February 15, 2020 for final determination of the 2020 scholarship winners by the Connecticut Police Foundation Carl Moller Scholarship Committee.
In recommending high school students from your jurisdiction you should consider financial need and the candidate's dedication to a career in law enforcement. Applications cannot be accepted without the written recommendation of the Police Chief in the town where the student lives or attends high school.
To provide general information about the scholarship for you we are attaching general information, an application form, and a financial aid form. Please duplicate these forms to make them available to interested students.
Remember: The application of your nominee with your recommendation and signature must be submitted before February 15, 2020. Thank you for your help.
