We believe that continuous education enriches the lives, skills and abilities of the officers and employees of the Atlanta Police Department. In support of this belief, the Atlanta Police Foundation, in partnership with the community, has created the Scholarship Reimbursement Program to provide APD staff with the opportunity to earn college credits.
Utilizing funding from the Atlanta Police Foundation, the Scholarship Program provides reimbursement scholarships of up to $3,000 per year, for APD employees to pursue college degrees and post baccalaureate work from accredited university programs.
- Scholarships include reimbursement for tuition paid out of pocket
- Scholarships are paid after students have completed the semester for which they are requesting reimbursement
- Course work must be in a job related field from an accredited university
- Students must earn a 3.0 GPA to qualify for reimbursement
