The Arthur Troop Scholarship (ATS) is now open for applications from IPA members worldwide. Arthur Troop Scholarships are awarded annually and preferably at least one will be granted to each continent in which we have member sections – Africa, America, Asia, Australia and Europe.
Each scholarship consists of a bursary of up to 2500 €, to be used for a seminar at the International Conference Centre IBZ Schloss Gimborn, or at a comparable institution.
Applicants must have been an IPA member for at least 2 years before applying, and the scholarship must be taken between 1 January and 31 December of the year following the awarding of the scholarship (extensions are not granted).
Arthur Troop Scholarships may be awarded to any IPA member who is a serving law enforcement officer, but are predominantly targeted at our younger members. Applicants are required to submit an application form setting out their reasons to support their selection.
The Chair of the Professional Commission (PC) will process the applications. After the assessment of the PC and the decision of the IEB, awardees will be announced during the World Congress in Croatia in October 2019.
The Arthur Troop Scholarship Application Form can be found on the international website at www.ipa-international.org/Arthur-Troop-Scholarship.
The deadline for applications is 31 March 2019.
May-Britt V. R. Ronnebro, Chairperson of the Professional Commission
