We’re continuing our official “reminder countdown” for The Utah 1033 Foundation 2018 Leadership Awards application deadline. We don’t want to pester or hassle, but we don’t want anyone to miss out either. Since applications need to be mailed to our P.O. Box, we’ll accept them as long as they’re postmarked by the January 31st deadline. So, to all potential applicants, get those application materials assembled and get those essays written, and good luck to all! Winners will be announced in April, 2018.
And, to all our friends and supporters, please help us spread the word. Active Utah Peace Officer dependents who are currently High School Seniors or currently enrolled in an accredited college or university (and under the age of 25) are welcome to apply, subject to additional eligibility requirements as detailed in the application packet.
As background: Each year, the Utah 1033 Foundation honors our heroes and helps dependents of current Utah Law Enforcement Officers pay for higher education through its annual Leadership Awards Program. In 2018, we will offer up to seven Awards of $2,500 each to qualified applicants in honor of our heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The application form is now live and available to download at https://utah1033.org/leadership-awards/ (click the Utah 1033 Foundation 2018 Leadership Award Application button on the right hand side of the screen), along with details regarding eligibility, the application process, timelines, etc. The deadline for completed applications is January 31st, 2018.
