Law enforcement deaths and assaults in the line of duty have increased in recent years.

From January through September of 2021, 59 police officers were killed in the line of duty - a 51% increase from the number of officers killed during the same period in 2020. The number of assaults against law enforcement officers performing their duties rose by 4,071 between 2019 and 2020 for a total number of 60,105 assaults. These dangers that officers face can have a significant impact on their family’s well-being and financial stability.

This scholarship seeks to honor the memory of Captain Clay Layne by supporting the children of law enforcement as they pursue their college degrees.

Any high school or undergraduate student in Indiana who’s the child of a law enforcement officer may apply for this scholarship, whether their parent is currently active, was killed in the line of duty, or otherwise passed away unexpectedly.

To apply, tell us what you’ve learned from your law enforcement parent, how you’ve contributed to the community, and what obstacle(s) you’ve faced and how you overcame them.
