The Iowa Association of Women Police is proud to announce a college scholarship opportunity. Our association will be offering a total of $2000 a year to be used for college expenses, including books and tuition. The scholarship, named the Phoenix Scholarship, is made possible by the generous donation of money from a benefactor who wanted to specifically help people in Law Enforcement. We will award part of the money each year to a current member of the Iowa Association of Women Police and also the child of a current member of the IaAWP. The information on how to apply for the Phoenix Scholarship is available on this page. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
