Captain James J. Regan Memorial Scholarship
Two merit-based awards are conferred. Each consists of a $500 one-time scholarship. The recognitions will be presented at the national law enforcement Explorer conference or at a local ceremony.
Any law enforcement Explorer who is in the 12th grade or in an accredited college program may apply. Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of their academic record, leadership ability, extracurricular activities, and a personal statement on "What significance I place on a technical background in law enforcement."
Candidates should complete the application with the certification of the post dvisor, head of the participating organization and Learning for Life representative. Candidates should also submit:
- Three letters of recommendation (at least two from people outside of law enforcement)
- A 250-word (minimum) essay on "How will technology affect law enforcement in the 21st Century?"
- High school transcripts (if in college, submit both college and high school transcripts)
- A black-and-white glossy photograph (preferably in uniform) for publicity purposes in the event of selection
