Brian Klinefelter Memorial Scholarship

The Brian Klinefelter Memorial Scholarship was established in 1996 not only to keep Brian’s memory alive after he was killed in the line of duty, but also to support students who exemplify the type of officer that Brian was. The Brian Klinefelter Memorial Scholarship Fund provides one $1,000 scholarship to an Alexandria Technical College student who is preparing for a career in law enforcement.

Applications are being accepted for a $1,000 scholarship to assist students who:
