Provides financial assistance to surviving children and to surviving spouses of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, according to Federal government criteria, who wish to pursue a course of study beyond high school.

American Police Hall of Fame Scholarship

The American Federation of Police & Concerned Citizens (AFP&CC) honors the memory of men and women killed in the line of duty both as officers and as parents, by assisting their children in attaining a college education, an experience which has an immeasurable impact on a young adult’s life and future. Fallen officers leave behind a legacy of courage, commitment and honor. Unfortunately, that is not all they leave behind. Many of our fallen officers leave sons and daughters whose lives are forever changed by the hardship of losing a parent.
