The WIFLE Foundation is an organization whose goal is to achieve gender equity in federal law enforcement through the recruitment, retention and promotion of qualified women in law enforcement, and to develop an information-sharing and support network for all women in law enforcement. In July 2006, the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics announced that as of September 2004, there were more than 106,000 full-time personnel authorized to make arrests and carry firearms in the Federal government. At the current time, women represent only 16.1% of that workforce.

The WIFLE Foundation offers scholarships to talented women to meet the demands in the field of law enforcement and to foster the professional development of those engaged in law enforcement. The dollar amount of each scholarship will be approximately $2,500, but may vary based on numerous factors. Awards may be renewable on subsequent applications. Please visit www.wifle.org to learn more about criminal justice scholarships for women in law enforcement.
