Sirchie Announces the Continuance of the Jeffrey Farkas Memorial Scholarship for 2013
Please note: the 2012 Scholarships have been awarded. Sirchie is extremely pleased to promote the renewal and expansion of the scholarship program for 2013 thanks to the generosity of Dr. CJ Lyons.
Sirchie is pleased to announce the opportunity for a scholarship to fund tuition for up to 10 recipients to attend a Sirchie-sponsored training course in 2013. This scholarship was made possible through the generosity of CJ Lyons, a pediatric ER physician and New York Times bestselling thriller author.
During CJ’s pediatric internship at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, one of her fellow interns, Dr. Jeffrey Farkas, was brutally murdered during a home invasion. Dr.Farkas was beaten, strangled, and stabbed multiple times, leaving a crime scene that spanned three stories of his house. Despite the overwhelming scene needing to be processed, crime scene technicians were able to recover usable fingerprints that were instrumental in the apprehension and conviction of Dr. Farkas’ killer.
This opportunity is open to all law enforcement personnel from departments with 50 or fewer officers.
Each applicant must provide the following information:
- Name of Agency
- Size of Agency
- Any prior Sirchie training attendance in your agency?
- How would attending this training benefit your department and the population you serve?
