        Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew about scholarships offered to future LEO's. Basically, I'm not going to college unless I can get scholarships/grants/financial aid/ whatever. And seeing as I need college for my career, well... I've been looking. Unfortunately the only family I have in LE was my Grandfather on my mom's side (He passed when she was a little girl) and a great grandpa back in England. Most of the scholarships I can find are for close family only. I appreciate any responses.


 


Also, I'm back! I've been insanely busy with explorers, volunteering, school, etc so I've pretty I haven't been around here for the longest time. I hope to talk to you all again!

Big question.


Fill out the FAFSA form with the college with whom you want to enroll and see what kind of loans you can receive. There are few scholarships for a college degree for Administration of Justice (or equivalent) courses.

 You can always work you way through college.  Get a job and go part time as you can afford classes.  This method takes longer but will be better in the long run.  Based on your screen name I am guessing you are still in high school.  I suggest you contact your guidance counselor.  He/she will be able to guide you towards grants, scholorships, and loans.  Good luck.

Get a job? Work? Are you kidding me? Are you saying you would encourage 'working your way through college'?


I've heard of this thing. A vintage concept I believe.


Really? Work?


You mean it's not FREE and I am not entitled to get everything for FREE?


(There's a theme here, mmmm. No attack on you: Purely tongue-in-cheek.)

 Oh, I plan on working through college. It's never been a doubt in my mind that I will work for anything I get. As a matter of fact, I'm going to try and get a job as soon as I get my license it March-- and I'm the only 16 y/o I know who is so excited about it.


 


I want to try to avoid loans. If I can go through college and not pay for it for a number of years afterward, it would be perfect.


I plan on majoring in Forensic Psycology or possibly Sociology-- I am shooting for a masters degree in either field. I would also like emergency management and some low-level healthcare education.

If you plan on attending a four year university, academic scholarships and government loans are likely the route you'll take. If offered at your school, look into the "A+ Program" which will pay for general education at a community college (you can obviously transfer to a university after two years and finish up your degree). Certainly talk to your guidance couselor about this, as he or she can offer far better advice than any of us. It might be something that the couselor will have to get back to you on, but they know far more about you than we do and can offer better advice accordingly.


Good luck as you persue your career. College is great, by the way.
