The Coral Springs Police Officers Foundation will award college scholarship money to several soon-to-be high school graduates, with awards varying from $500 to $1,000 each, the union announced this week.
Union officials said that the scholarship program is open to high school seniors residing in Coral Springs.
Last year, the Coral Springs Police Officers Foundation FOP Lodge 87, a non-profit organization of law enforcement officers, awarded scholarships to nine high school seniors.
“We’re happy to be able to once again offer this scholarship program,” said Paul Kempinski, Vice President of the FOP lodge. “It’s important to our organization to give back to the community. We’re so happy to have expanded this program over the last several years to give out more scholarships than in previous years. Our scholarship committee members are always amazed at the impressive work of the candidates.”
Applications for scholarships must be received no later than Friday, April 15, 2022.
Applicants must fall into at least one of two categories to qualify:
For the first category, they must reside in Coral Springs, maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0, be accepted to a college or university, major in a criminal justice field, and have no prior arrests.
For the second category, they must be a child or grandchild of an FOP Lodge 87 member, have maintained a minimum GPA of 3.0, have been accepted to a college or university, and have no prior arrests.
