Scholarship
 
 
 
Two teenagers passionate about their studies have been awarded WA Police Union Education Scholarships
 
Each year, WAPU presents two Education Scholarships to secondary students, one based in the metropolitan area and another in regional WA. 
 
The scholarships were introduced in 1997 as a way of giving back to the Members’ families and to assist with the cost of education.
 
Alicia Taylor and Kahli Davis were announced as the recipients of the scholarships at WAPU HQ this week. 
 
Kahli Davis, is the daughter of Sergeant Scott Davis who is currently stationed at Mt Magnet and recently entered Year 11 at St Brigid’s College.
 
Kahli said she was very pleased to be awarded the metropolitan scholarship, which will aid her in her future aspirations of studying medicine. 
 
“I would love to get at least a 95 ATAR and get into medicine, that’s my goal,” she said. 
 
“Eventually, I would love to get into reconstructive plastic surgery.  I did a future health professionals program in the holidays where I did a week at a hospital learning about the different areas of medicine.
 
“It was a great experience going through all the different specialities but plastic surgery really stuck out to me.” 
 
Kahli said she would love to go to Curtin University after she finishes Year 12.
 
The value of the scholarships depends on the school year and will continue annually, subject to the students’ satisfactory attendance, conduct, academic progress and the Member’s continued membership of WAPU.
 
Unfortunately, regional winner Alicia Taylor was unable to be at the presentation and WAPU will present her with her award in the near future.
 
Alicia is entering year 10 at Geraldton Gramma School and is the daughter of Senior Constable Alvin Taylor. 
 
Applications for the 2022 scholarships will open at the end of this year.
