Women in Federal Law Enforcement
Scholarship Name: WIFLE Scholarship
Description: The first images that pop into mind when one thinks of federal law enforcement generally don’t include very many women. A job that has been traditionally reserved for men, the Women in Federal Law Enforcement association was created to promote not only the opportunities from women in the profession, but also the public image of law enforcement in general. There are two scholarship opportunities through WIFLE, one for the general public, and another for current WIFLE members (or a student sponsored by a member “in good standing”). The general scholarship is announced every year in conjunction with WIFLE’s annual Leadership Training Conference. The member scholarship is worth an additional $1,500.
Awards per Year: One
Award is Open to: Undergraduate Students
Major/Field of Study: Criminal Justice, Law Enforcement, Law
How to Apply/Contact: Scholarship information is only available in February, and is closely associated with the WIFLE Leadership Training Conference. You will only be able to access the application form at that time, but you can find out more about the WIFLE association, and the members-only scholarship by visiting the Women In Federal Law Enforcement website.
