Marquette Police Department Scholarship



The Marquette Police Department Scholarship was established through the generous donations of current, former and retired members of the Marquette City Police Department. Comprised of 34 sworn officers and 5 support staff, the Marquette City Police Department feels it is our responsibility to start promoting the law enforcement profession and recruiting qualified men and women who choose to pursue a career that truly makes a difference in their community. Police departments throughout Michigan and the country are unable to fill vacancies due to a lack of qualified candidates. By investing in our youth through education, internships and scholarship opportunities, we can promote the dynamic and rewarding career of law enforcement.

Scholarship recipients should:
  • Plan on attending a college or university majoring in Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement.
  • Possess strong communication skills.
  • Want to make a difference in their community
  • Be a team player
