The 2022 PORAC Scholarship application is now available! The application must be received at PORAC Headquarters by the end of business day March 4, 2022. Applications submitted via e-mail or fax will not be accepted.
In 1980, PORAC formed a separate nonprofit public benefit corporation for educational and training purposes. This foundation is the Peace Officers Relief and Education Foundation (POREF). One of the main functions of the Foundation is the sponsorship of a Scholarship Program. The Scholarship Program is part of PORAC’s ongoing effort to improve the quality of the law enforcement profession in California. The Scholarship Program was developed from PORAC’s strong sense of commitment to individual communities and the PORAC members who serve those communities.
