CAHP Foundation Scholarships

Public Overview

CAHP Foundation Scholarships

The deadline to submit an application for the 2019/2020 academic year has passed. Winners will be announced in the fall.

One of the goals of the CAHP Foundation is to provide financial assistance to the financially-dependent, college-age children of a qualified California Highway Patrol officer and, specific to the one of the scholarships, the financially-dependent, college-age children of any active, retired or deceased California peace officer. By making these grants available, the Foundation strives to encourage college-age law enforcement dependents to pursue academic programs at post-secondary educational institutions.
