The Academy will be held June 22-28 at the NH
Technical Institute (NHTI) in Concord, NH. It is a residential
program requiring the Cadets to report Saturday morning and they are
dismissed after graduation the following Friday.
During the course of the Academy the staff awards the $1000 Walter "Bud" Dockham & $500 John Osborne Memorial Scholarships to two cadets who are entering or enrolled in college. They also award the Edward Soucy Memorial Scholarship for a Basic or Advanced Cadet to return to the next session.
Cadets wanting to attend, but needing assistance with the enrollment fees are encouraged to download scholarship applications for the Ofc. Rene Forcier Memorial Scholarship given by the Dunbarton Police Association, Ofc. Sean Powers Memorial Scholarships (2) provided by the Powers Family to current or graduated students from Hopkinton or Hillsboro-Deering High Schools, the NH Sheriff's Association Scholarship and an award provided by a generous donor family.
