Gwinnett County Police Foundation Scholarship Awards

Scholarships are awarded to the dependent children of active Gwinnett County Police Department employees on the basis of academic achievement, extra-curricular activities, volunteer services and financial need. They are designed to reward, encourage and assist students pursuing academic excellence and leadership. Awarded scholarships do not need to be repaid, but must be used for tuition, books, supplies or fees associated with a course.  Currently, the Gwinnett County Police Foundation provides funding for five (5) scholarship awards each year in the amount of $1,000 each.
