Please read the following requirements and instructions carefully, and select the opportunity that is the best fit for you/your group.​​​​​​​

 Only one application per team will be reviewed.


​​​​​​​Please have one person from your team of two submit the application. Do not apply for more than one scholarship type or your application will not be considered. Incomplete applications or applications that do not meet the requirements will not be accepted. Each person on the team must have a separate Applicant entry under the Applicant tab (this will make sense once you are in the application).

We continuously review and award scholarships from November-May. You will be notified via email by May 1, 2023 at the very latest if your application is accepted. This email will contain further instructions on how to accept the terms of agreement, which is required before we can officially award the scholarship. Our sole form of communication is email, so please monitor your email closely after submitting.


Option 1: Texas Governor's Office, CJD Scholarship 

Requires a team of two individuals who work together in rural or underserved communities in Texas. One of the two must be an advocate. For example, a victim advocate and detective, or an advocate and a prosecutor. To be eligible, your office may not be the recipient of any funding from the State of Texas Criminal Justice Division. This scholarship covers registration and four nights at the hotel ($716) for both individuals. 

​​​​​​​Option 2: Nancy Ann Hunt Foundation Scholarship​​​​​​​

Requires a team of two individuals with different roles who work together collaboratively and are from outside the state of Texas (applicants outside of the U.S. can also apply). For example, a victim advocate and a detective. This scholarship covers registration and four nights at the hotel ($716) for both individuals. 

​​​​​​​Option 3: Faith & Liberty Match Scholarship

Your department/agency/county/etc., provides the registration ($595) and cost of the hotel for an attendee for up to four nights ($716 max) and CCAW will match the funding for a paid attendee. Limit 1 per agency.​​​​​​​

We recommend the lead applicant submit the application. Profiles are ONLY for applicants who will be attending the Conference once the scholarship is awarded.​​​​​​​

This means that you will need to have have your partner's personal information ready.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

2. Make sure both your Profile AND Submission (application) is complete. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.

If you are applying to the Faith & Liberty Match Scholarship, enter in the person you want to receive the scholarship as the Lead Applicant. Enter in the person your agency is paying for as the Co-applicant (this will make sense once you begin the process).
