The Corrections Foundation at its September 20th, 2022 board meeting unanimously voted to change the Louie L. Wainwright Scholarship so that nine scholarships instead of one will be awarded in the future.
Beginning in 2023, the Corrections Foundation will award $1,000 Louie L. Wainwright Scholarships to an individual in each Institutional and Community Corrections Region and Central Office, for a total of nine.
Board President Mark Redd said, "we can and should provide additional scholarships. We as a board and organization have the ability and willingness to have a meaningful impact on people's education and careers in a way that helps them and the Department of Corrections."
The Corrections Foundation will begin accepting Louie L. Wainwright Scholarship applications on January 1, 2023.
