Each year, the NYPD Pulaski Association awards High School and College scholarships to children of members.
In order to be eligible for a scholarship, the student must be a son or daughter or grand son or grand daughter of a paid-up member in good standing and graduating from the 8th grade or planning to take the Police Reserve Association College Scholarship Exam.
Awards are based on the child’s performance in a competitive examination regardless if they attend a private, parochial or public school. Along with the Pulaski Scholarship, the following Police Foundations offer various scholarships: Police Reserve Association, Centurion Foundation, and New York Law Enforcement Foundation.
The examination is open to sons and daughters, grand sons and grand daughters of active or retired members of the NYPD who are college bound high school seniors who will be attending a two or four year college and be matriculated the September following the test for at least one full school year (Sept – August). The exam is not open to civilian members of the department nor Associate Members. Winners will be notified in May and awards presentation will take place in June.
Winners must be present at the Scholarship Night Presentation to claim their award. Unclaimed awards will be forfeited. Our Scholarship Chair Person is Krys Fryc. Anyone applying for any of the scholarships must notify Krys at 646-643-5747 and email Krys@nypdpulaski.org to give all of your information and your child’s information.
