100 from any MIT phone
On April 18, 2013 the MIT Police lost a brother and a friend, Officer Sean Collier. In order to honor him in the best way they know how they set up a scholarship fund that would send one self-sponsored recruit (MIT Self Sponsor) through the Lowell Police Academy (LPA) annually (the Scholarship) as a student officer. Officer Collier self-sponsored himself through the Transit Academy in order to start his law enforcement career. This recruit will have the honor of wearing MIT’s Patch in Officer Sean Collier’s memory. Spring of 2022 will mark the 7th year of this great Scholarship. **2021 had no recruit due to COVID-19**
