The MA-VLEOA is pleased to announce that it is currently accepting applications for the awarding of two $500 Officer Sean Collier scholarships to the Municipal Police Training Committee (MPTC) Reserve Academy. Applications will be accepted through February 1, 2015 and the two scholarship recipients will be announced on April 18, 2015.

The Officer Sean Collier scholarship was established in 2013 to honor the memory of Officer Sean Collier who was killed in the line of duty on 18 April 2013 while working with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Police Department.  Officer Collier started his law enforcement career as an auxiliary officer in Somerville, Massachusetts.  Through the efforts of the MA-VLEOA, this scholarship will ensure that Officer Collier’s name remains in the forefront of auxiliary and reserve officers in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts by providing scholarships to the MPTC Reserve Academy.

Applicants must be either planning to attend an academy or currently attending an academy at the time of application. Applicants must be members in good standing of the MA-VLEOA, through either an individual membership, or as part of their Department’s membership at the time of application through payment of the scholarship. Awards will be made by a committee based on a review of your application and essay. Any Scholarships awarded will be paid to the applicant after one year of post academy volunteer service with their agency. This is a competitive process, with limited awards.
