The 2020 ATS awardees were announced at the World Congress in Croatia 2019. Congratulations to the successful winners of the Arthur Troop Scholarship.

The Arthur Troop Scholarship (ATS) 2021 is now open for applications from IPA members worldwide. Arthur Troop Scholarships are awarded annually, and preferably at least one will be granted to each continent in which we have member sections – Africa, America, Asia, Australasia and Europe.

Each scholarship consists of a bursary of up to 2500 €, to be used for a seminar at the International Conference Centre IBZ Schloss Gimborn, or at a comparable institution.

Applicants must have been an IPA member for at least 3 years before applying, and the scholarship must be taken between 1 January and 31 December of the year following the awarding of the scholarship.

Arthur Troop Scholarships may be awarded to any IPA member active in a law enforcement role, but are predominantly targeted at our younger members. Applicants are required to submit the ATS Application Form setting out their reasons to support their selection.

Applications must be processed through the below electronic link: Online Application Form

The International Administration Centre (IAC) will contact the relevant national sections for confirmation of IPA membership of the applicants after receiving the electronic applications.

The Chairperson of the Professional Commission (PC) will thereafter process the applications. After the assessment of the PC and the decision of the IEB, awardees for 2021 will be announced during the IPA World Congress in Spain in October 2020.
