ASA-DOJ Announces Scholarship Award Recipients

The Association of Special Agents-Department of Justice (ASA-DOJ) is proud to announce the recipients of the 2017 ASA-DOJ scholarship awards.  ASA-DOJ awarded four $500.00 scholarships.

“As special agents, we don’t always get to see the best that society has to offer,” said ASA-DOJ President Al Cardwood.  “And then each June we have these scholarship applications come across our desks from some really, good, talented, smart kids who have solid plans and solid futures and you can’t help but feel proud and inspired.  And to hear their genuine appreciation that they’ve been selected to receive $500.00 is just heartwarming. We congratulate each of our recipients and wish all of those who applied the very best as they advance their education and pursue their goals.  I would also like to thank ASA-DOJ directors for their commitment to our scholarship awards program.”
