It would not seem wise to disregard the cost fee or, rather say, the tuition of criminal justice schools, which, to tell you the truth, are in average of $10,000 per year (and even more for the out-of-state students i.e. around $25,000 per year). Hence, considering your small pocket size but big determination to become a criminal justice practitioner, the venerable state governments as well as various other private, institutional and federal agencies have kindly provisioned a number of criminaljustice scholarship awards for the poor-but-ambitious persons.

Introduction to 4 Popular Scholarship Granting Agencies for Criminal Justice Aspirants


1. Federal Circuit Bar Association

Well, if you are interested to pursue the profession of a criminal justice lawyer, then the Federal Circuit Bar Association, which is a national organization, would certainly be there to support you financially, provided that you are eligible for its scholarship awards.
Currently, the Federal Bar Association, through its Charitable and Educational Fund, has been doing the noble job of issuing scholarship awards like the Henderson Scholarship, the Bullinger Scholarship ($5000) and the Giles Sutherland Rich Memorial Scholarship ($10,000) for the worthy candidates seeking law education.
2. Education Portal’s Criminal Justice Award

undergraduate level academic award to the permanent residents or citizens of United States.

As a side note, let me inform you that Education Portal emphasizes on the candidates, who have done voluntary social works or such other praise-worthy activities; financial condition of the candidate does not matter.

Issued by the NOBLE i.e. National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, the “Irlet Anderson Scholarship Award” is designed exclusively for providing financial aid to the minority students, seeking criminal justice education (be it at associate’s level or bachelor’s level).
