NEWARK BRONZE SHIELDS SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION
This is the time of year when high school seniors are making critical decisions about their future. In addition to completing that final year of high school, the next chapter of life is a major area of focus. This next chapter often includes preparing for college and figuring out how to pay for the associated expenses. The Newark Bronze Shields would like award a select number of Newark High School Seniors who are college bound with a $1,000.00 scholarship. We recognize all the hard work and sacrifice you put forth.
The scholarship awards are funded through charitable contributions from Sworn and Civilian Newark Police Department personnel, as well as countless supporters. The Newark Bronze Shields also host an annual Scholarship Dinner Dance to help raise funding towards these scholarships which are presented to deserving students.

The Newark Bronze Shields is the African-American police officers association within the Newark Police Department. The organization was founded in 1959 by a group of African-American Police Officers who were battling racial discrimination within the Newark Police Department.
We are a non-profit organization committed to serving the citizens of Newark, New Jersey as well as the African-American community abroad. We are focused on improving the quality of life within the community by engaging in youth programs, fundraisers to benefit the less fortunate, and providing scholarships for college-bound students. We are also charged with the responsibility of the recruitment and retention of African-American Police Officers in the City of Newark and abroad.
