The SCLEOF will award one $3,000 scholarship and two $2,000 scholarships to high school seniors in the coming year. One of the $2,000 scholarships will be awarded to the child of an SCLEOA member.
The SCLEOF will award 3 FBI LEEDA Scholarships in 2017 to SCLEOA Members. Further, the SCLEOF will pay the officer or department $200 towards travel cost to attend the 4 ½ day training. The value of each scholarship is $650 plus $200 in travel expenses.
