The Ronald G. Williams, Jr. Foundation was formed in memory of Delaware State Police Master Corporal Ronald G. Williams, Jr., and to honor his commitment to faith, family, and duty. In keeping with this goal, the Foundation each year solicits applications for one-time $1000.00 scholarships to be used toward full-time post-secondary education at an accredited college or university.
The Officer Chad Spicer Heroes Scholarship was created in memory of Georgetown, DE police officer Chad Spicer, killed in the line of duty on September 1, 2009. To honor Officer Spicer and his commitment to the community, the Heroes Scholarship seeks to bring awareness to other heroes in our own hometowns. The scholarship is open to high school seniors from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, having at least a 2.5 grade point average (GPA) or equivalent, and who are pursuing an education, majoring in Criminal Justice.
To compete for a scholarship award, the completed application packet must be postmarked March 1st through May 31st
of the applicant’s senior high school year. The award must then be applied to full-time schooling, with a declared major
in Criminal Justice, starting in the Fall of that same calendar year. Winners will be notified by mail, and have their
names, high school name, and essay posted on the Foundation’s Internet website in July of that same year.
