Globe University Announces Scholarship for Police Officers

Broadview University, Globe University and Minnesota School of Business now offer a scholarship for police officers. Eligible students must be employed as a police officer and be off probationary status. Retired police officers may also be eligible.

The scholarship helps meet the growing trend of police officers pursuing higher education.

“A bachelor’s degree is very desirable now in policing,” said Dan Swanson, criminal justice program chair at Broadview University in West Jordan, Utah.  “This scholarship was created to motivate officers to earn their bachelor’s degree, which can help them move up within their organizations and broaden their foundation of knowledge.”

Students must be enrolled in the universities’ criminal justice bachelor’s degree program to be eligible. Eligible students will be awarded reduced tuition and will receive 35 percent off the cost of books.

Qualified students may receive prior learning credits for their police  academy curriculum and work experience. The bachelor’s in criminal justice program offers classes online and in person to create a flexible learning schedule.

Nearly 54 percent of the universities’ graduates who have earned associate  degrees in criminal justice continued their education, including 41 percent in  the universities’ bachelor’s criminal justice program.

The universities’ “We Care” guiding philosophy ensures that student needs are  first and foremost. Offering many scholarship opportunities to students is one  example of this philosophy. In 2010-2011, the system of career schools awarded more than $10 million in funds for tuition and books to thousands of students.
