Scholarship Program

In honor of the Annapolis Police Department’s 150th Anniversary in 2017, we proudly launched our Annual Scholarship Program.  The Annapolis Police Department recognizes the importance of higher education and we will be awarding two $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors with financial need who seek to attend an accredited college.  

The Scholarship Program was been established with the goal of assisting current graduating seniors residing in the City of Annapolis.  We work with local schools and community organizations to identify students who need financial aid to attend college.  

Donations can be made to the Scholarship Fund by sending a check to the Annapolis Police Scholarship Fund at the Annapolis Police Department, 199 Taylor Avenue, Annapolis, MD 21401.  All donations are tax deductible.  If you have any questions about this program please contact Lieutenant Kevin Krauss at 410-268-9000 ext. 7255 or kckrauss@annapolis.gov.
