Funding for Law Enforcement Students
The Florida Law Enforcement Academy Scholarship Program is here to help increase the number of trained law enforcement officers within Florida by providing financial assistance to eligible trainees who enroll in a commission-approved law enforcement officer basic recruit training program. Scholarship funds are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so students are encouraged to apply early. Award amounts can cover up to but not exceed the costs necessary to complete the basic recruit training program, less any state/federal financial aid received by the trainee.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must meet the following criteria:
- Be enrolled in CF’s law enforcement academy or crossover to law enforcement program
- Have a completed FAFSA on file
- Submit the scholarship application
- Be admitted to CF through the general admissions application
Students who are sponsored or have their education paid for by an employing agency are not eligible for this scholarship.
