The Arlington Police Foundation supports the Arlington Independent School District and the Arlington Police Department’s Home Town Recruiting Program by funding two scholarships to two worthy students each year. The scholarships can be applied at any college or university in Texas. The goal of the program is to keep valued individuals in Arlington. The students who are awarded the AISD program’s achievement medal are eligible. The potential award recipients then submit an essay and then are interviewed by a board consisting of representatives of AISD, APD and APF. Last years winners are enrolled at Sam Houston State University and Tarrant County College criminal justice programs.
