Scholarship Opportunities

Each year, the association awards three (3) $1,000.00 scholarships to dependents of our membership.  An application is available for download and must be submitted by May 15th of each year to be eligible for consideration.  A committee reviews all applications and awards the top three applicants during the annual summer conference.  



MLEOA is proud to present the 2016 winners of the Robbie Max well scholarship award and the Bill Martin scholarship award to two very deserving young people.  This award is an important reminder that this association is about more than motorcycles and K-9’s it is also about families. One of the things that we as a board put a lot of effort into is making sure that our annual conference every year is family friendly. It is very rewarding for us to have the Officers' families involved because it is important that we don’t forget that they carry the burden of sacrifice along with us as we serve our communities every day. 

These scholarships are a reminder to this association every year that the clock is ticking and is a reminder to take advantage of the too few moments that we have with our children before they leave us to make their own mark on the world.
