The scholarship is funded by proceeds raised through the Beyond the Badge 5K Run & Walk as well as corporate and private donations. Further, a contribution by Crown Hill Cemetery is made to the fund for every memorial inscription and burial space purchased in the Heroes of Public Safety Section.
The amount of the scholarship is based, in part, on interest earned on the principal to ensure the scholarship(s) are awarded annually.
