Academic & Vocational 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 to ease 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 have continued to bring increased stress to CHP families.
Since 1984, the 11-99 Foundation has provided over $40 million in scholarships to children of CHP employees, helping thousands of deserving students achieve their educational dreams. In 2023, the 11-99 Foundation awarded $3.3 million in scholarship awards to over 1,000 recipients statewide. We thank our generous members for their continued support – especially Suzanne and Godfrey Sullivan, after whom our Sullivan Advanced Study Scholarships are named. We also thank the CAHP Credit Union for their generous sponsorship of our annual scholarship ceremonies.
