Scholarships for Law Enforcement Majors

While law enforcement majors can certainly become police officers, there are a number of other career paths they may choose to follow which can lead to positions as private security officers, corrections officers, bodyguards and more. If you’re a law enforcement major who would like to protect your savings as well as your community, you might want to consider applying for a scholarship. Some scholarships are available through national organizations, such as the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Women in Federal Law Enforcement and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, while others are available through individual colleges, such as Loyola University, Idaho State University and Western Illinois University.
