Inspiring stories of why we do what we do.
“I am grateful to the CHP 11-99 Foundation and all donors that make this scholarship available for CHP families. Because of your generosity, I can continue to work towards my four-year degree in Political Science. I chose Poli-Sci because I am interested in the workings of government, politics, justice, ethics, and public policy. My bachelor’s degree will serve as a stepping stone to help me achieve my goal to become a lawyer. Thank you for this scholarship award that will greatly help me with college expenses.”Michael Henriques General scholarship recipient

“I am incredibly grateful to be a recipient of an 11-99 scholarship. After my final year of nursing school, I ultimately plan on working in oncology, and obtaining my Nurse Practitioner license. I believe there is a lot of good to be done within that field. My father is a CHP officer and my mother is a nurse, and I feel that I have been drawn to healthcare and service through their examples. Thank you so much for enabling me to actualize my career goals and hopefully make an impact within my community.”Parker Zerilli General scholarship recipient

After graduation, I will seek employment with the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a Special Agent with a specialization in Cyber Security. I hope to fight and protect society against cyber crimes. By awarding me this scholarship, I am able to concentrate on what is important for me at this stage in my life, which is my education.
