College Scholarship Program

The MPA College Scholarship Program
Who is Eligible?

Scholarships are available to the children of active or retired members in good standing of the Mass Police Association. Children of deceased MPA members who were in good standing at the time of their death are also eligible. Students must be enrolled or actively attending college to be eligible.

No person may be awarded more than one (1) scholarship. Eligible applicants must intend to further their education during the school year following the award. If a recipient does not enter school during that time, the amount of the award will be returned to the treasury.
