Wear the Badge College Scholarships




The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Foundation is pleased to offer Wear the Badge Scholarships to Minnesota undergraduate students studying law enforcement and related fields. The scholarships include $500 awards for new students and $1000 awards for advanced students. The MCPF supports diversity in this application and award process.

Eligibility requirements:

  • $500 scholarships are available to prospective law enforcement students NOT currently enrolled in a post-secondary institution
  • $1000 scholarships are available to students who are enrolled in an accredited Minnesota college and are in the 2nd year of a two-year program or the 3rd or 4th year of a four-year program
  • Past scholarship applicants and recipients are eligible to re-apply as long as they meet the rest of the requirements

Applications are reviewed by members of the MCPF Board of Directors. Scholarship recipients will be notified in the Spring of 2020 and recognized at the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association Statewide Awards Banquet in April. Scholarships will be deposited in the recipients student account at the Minnesota college at which they are enrolled.
