WACOPS Youth Scholarship Program

Do you or a fellow officer have a high school senior or college aged student? Beginning in March 1st of each year, the WACOPS scholarship committee begins accepting applications using our online application process.

To be eligible, students must be a child of a current WACOPS member, between the ages of 17-21, and submit their high school graduation date or proof of a GED certificate. Up to 15 - $1,000 scholarship awards granted to students. Past WACOPS scholarship recipients are not eligible to apply. The scholarship may be used at any accredited college, university, or vocational/technical school upon proof of enrollment.
