Bensard Scholarship

Denver Police Officers Foundation

Jaques and Alexisa Bensard Medical Education Scholarship Award


In 2009 Retired. Tech. Jacques Bensard and his wife Alexisa set up the scholarship awards program to help tuition assistance for medical education for children, grandchildren of active and retired Denver Police Officers. This is the result of a 1980 financial assistance received for their son Denis from Dr. Lawless in memory of his father Captain Lawless of the Denver Police Department. Today Dr. Denis Bensard is a recognized expert in the Medical Field in Denver.


Those who are eligible to apply may do so after May classes have ended, this is to obtain their last grades, which must be submitted with proper forms requesting assistance. The application forms may be picked up at the Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement Credit Union or by contacting a Denver Police Officers Foundation Board Member.


We are truly thankful to Jacques Bensard for keeping the Scholarship Award program going in memory of his lovely wife Alexisa who was very proud to have put the program together. They have helped numerous children and grandchildren of Denver Police Officers paying out thousands of dollars for their education assistance.


Help us in our continued mission of supporting Denver Police Officers and their families you support them.
