Chapter Training Scholarship Program


One of the many benefits of APCO Membership is the opportunity to participate in the Scholarship Programs. The Chapter Training Scholarship Program provides reimbursement funds to two Full Chapter Members each year that may be used for APCO Institute training, APCO International Conference attendance, and the APCO Virtual College at Jacksonville State University. Books, tuition, registration costs, travel and living expenses can all be considered in the application. The deadline to apply is (see document). If you’re not an APCO member, there is plenty of time to join.


The Chapter Training Scholarship Program was initiated as a means of remembering and honoring individuals who have participated in West Virginia APCO, contributed to West Virginia APCO, and meant a great deal to West Virginia APCO members. By remembering these individuals who mean so much to us, they continue to contribute to our organization even beyond the years we were privileged to have them in our midst. The scholarships afford these individuals an eternal means of helping to develop those who will follow in their footsteps as leaders, mentors, and public safety communications professionals.

The Chapter Training Scholarship Program was initiated by the 2014 Conference Committee as a means for our Chapter to give back to the public safety community. Scholarship funds are received through the Conference Committee and administered by WV APCO. Funding comes from a portion of your membership dues paid to APCO International that are returned to the West Virginia Chapter and are disbursed for public safety job-related training in the form of two $500 annual scholarships awarded at the fall Chapter Training Conference banquet.
