Applications Invited for the 13th Annual Officer David White Scholarship

Applications are being accepted now through April 25 for the 2019 Officer David White Scholarship. This scholarship honors the compassionate public service modeled by Naperville Park Police Officer David White, whose actions helped save a young man’s life in 2006.

The scholarship is open to an individual age 25 and under who either is a son or daughter of an active duty Naperville police officer, park police officer, or firefighter or someone who is serving in one of these roles themselves.  Naperville Police Explorers and Naperville Fire Explorers also are eligible.

The scholarship is funded by an anonymous donor, who has provided $2,000 annually for the scholarship since 2007. In the donor’s words, “The purpose of the scholarship is to inspire our next generation of public servants to care enough to exert the extra effort, to take a second look.” 

The 2019 application and brochure can be downloaded at and paper copies are available at Naperville Park District facilities. The deadline for submitting completed applications is Thursday, April 25 at 3:30 p.m. Applicants will be notified of the results in late May and the winner will be recognized at the June 13 Naperville Park District Board of Commissioners meeting.
