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 then, rising tuition costs continue to bring increased stress to CHP families.
Since 1984, the 11-99 Foundation has provided over $30 million total in scholarships to children of CHP employees, helping thousands of deserving students achieve their educational dreams. In 2019, the 11-99 Foundation distributed $2.5 million in scholarship awards to 1,114 recipients statewide during the month of July. We thank our very generous members for their continued support of this program, most especially Godfrey and Suzanne Sullivan, whom our Advanced Study Sullivan Award is named after. Thank you for investing in our youth.
