  • Scholarship Description
  • The WIFLE Foundation (WIFLE) is an organization whose goal is to achieve gender equity within federal law enforcement through the recruitment, retention and promotion of qualified women in law enforcement, and to develop an information-sharing and support network for all women in law enforcement. In July 2006, the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics announced that as of September 2004, there were more than 106,000 full time personnel authorized to make arrests and carry firearms in the Federal government. Women represent only 16.1 percent of that workforce. There remains much to be done to achieve gender balance within the federal agencies. It is in the spirit of achieving this goal that WIFLE offers a scholarship.

    The WIFLE Foundation will offer a scholarship(s) to talented individual(s) to meet the demands in the field of law enforcement and to foster the professional development of those engaged in law enforcement. The dollar amount of each scholarship will be approximately $2,500, but may vary based on numerous factors. Awards may be renewable on subsequent applications.
