Scholarship Fund

"Teach our youth to dream big, enjoy their journeys, and to never, ever, give up” – Matt Scoggin


The San Luis Obispo Police Officers' Association Scholarship Fund aims to maximize the opportunity for children in need (ages 0 - 18 years old) in the San Luis Obispo community to participate in extracurricular activities in athletics, the arts, and academia by funding their tuition.

The San Luis Obispo Police Officers' Association is comprised of 70 members. Most of our members have experience in working with children in the community and collaborating with local youth organizations. Unfortunately, we often encounter children in difficult circumstances and critical situations.

The SLOPOA recognizes that children need direction in finding their passion, identity, and purpose in life. We believe that children who participate in extracurricular activities find themselves challenged with setting goals, critical thinking, and time management.

These activities promote a positive self-image and keep children away from having idle time. In providing children with the opportunity to be involved in programs and activities that promote confidence and self-motivation, we are also enabling them to become positive community members both today and in the future.
