Jennifer L. Sebena Memorial Training Scholarship

The Wisconsin Association of Women Police, in conjunction with the Wauwatosa Peace
Officers Association, is proud to provide a $200 scholarship to a WAWP member for financial
assistance to attend the 2020 Training Conference. We are honored to receive this support from
the WPOA in Officer Sebena’s name so that her service and sacrifice shall always be
remembered.

Requirements:* WAWP Member * Not a board member * Registered for the 2020 Training Conference * Attendee paid out of pocket for all or portions of conference attendance.

Jennifer Sebena Memorial Scholarship funds will serve to reimburse out-of-pocket attendance and/or hotel fees
up to $200. The scholarship winner will be picked randomly at the conference. Non-attendance voids the application. Only attendees who have out-of-pocket expenses for the conference are eligible for up to but not exceeding $200 reimbursement. If the winner of the scholarship does not meet $200 in reimbursable funds, the surplus amount will be transferred to the student scholarship fund.
