Congratulations to our 2018 CSLEA Foundation Scholarship Recipients

The California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) is proud to announce the recipients of this year's CSLEA Consumer Protection & Public Safety Foundation Scholarship Awards. This year, the foundation awarded eight applicants with $1,000 dollars each.

"It's a proud achievement  that we are able to keep our non-profit scholarship program funded each year  to help our members with the expense of higher education," said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. "Our directors on the scholarship committee volunteer their time to review and score each applicant and I thank them for their commitment to our members. Great job and congratulations to the eight award recipients!  We wish them the very best as they work toward their career goals."

"Our members should be extremely proud of their children," said CSLEA Foundation Scholarship Committee Chairman Al Cardwood. "We received nearly 50 qualified applications from a lot of very impressive young minds. They impressed us and we wish all of them the brightest of futures. I will be contacting our recipients next week to personally congratulate them!"
