Scholarships Update

Morgan Hill Scholarship
We had the pleasure of hosting Janet and Barry Hill at the Police Legacy offices, and hearing in person about the very deserving recipients of this annual scholarship. The young Police Legatees – this year Ainsley Baker, Phillip Powell, and Olympia Plummer – each received an iPad to assist them in their education.

Sean Burns Scholarship
This annual scholarship of $500-1,000 is provided through the Burns family, in memory of retired police officer Sean Burns who died in 2012. The scholarships fund young Police Legatees who are excelling in their chosen sport, or are studying sports, exercise, or nutrition, at a tertiary level. This year’s recipients were Thomas Chell, Charli Jones, Reese Young, Elli Steel and Luke Steel. Applications accepted in July each year; applications forms are on the Resources page of our website.

Bill Crews Scholarship
Awarded to a probationary constable once they have completed their first year, this annual award is worth $6,000, and serves as a memorial to Detective Constable William ‘Bill’ Crews. This scholarship is provided through the generosity of the Crews family. Applications close 30 November each year, and forms can be downloaded from the Resources page of our website.
