Vocational & Academic Scholarships

Our founder, Bob Weinberg, was concerned first and foremost with the safety and welfare of the men and women of the California Highway Patrol. As a result, he launched a scholarship fund in 1984 for the purpose of easing the financial burden of education. He hoped this program would free officers from the distraction this kind of financial burden can cause while on the job.

Since 1984, the 11-99 Foundation has provided over $27 million total in scholarships to children of CHP employees, helping thousands of deserving students achieve their educational dreams. Our General scholarships are offered annually to sons, daughters, or other non-spouse legal dependents of living CHP employees or retirees, both uniformed and non-uniformed. Our Fallen Hero scholarships are offered annually to sons, daughters, spouses, or other legal dependents of CHP officers who were killed in the line of duty. Applicants must be attending or plan to attend a post-secondary institution (college, university, trade/technical or vocational school).
