Since 2018, Leeds has sponsored two scholarships awarded by the University of Central Oklahoma Forensic Science Institute to two individuals studying forensic science. Leeds is very proud to support this outstanding program and these rising forensic scientists. We believe the future of this industry is bright and these students are carving their own paths towards impactful careers in this field of forensics.
This year’s recipients of the Leeds 2023 Forensic Systems Scholarship are:
- Makia Maxey, a senior at UCO, majoring in Forensic Science as well as Criminal Justice. Makia is interested in working for a federal agency.
- Roll ‘Chos, a third-year student, pursuing a B.A. in Criminal Justice and a B.S. in Forensic Science. Roll serves in the Student Academy of Forensic Sciences as the Vice President through the Forensic Science Institute (FSI).
