ABC Examination Award

In memory of Edward Rhodes, a pioneer in forensic education and certification, The American Board of Criminalistics (ABC), in conjunction with the Northwest Association of Forensic Scientists (NWAFS), offers a complimentary application and examination sitting for one representative of the NWAFS (a $300 value).  ABC examinations are typically hosted at each NWAFS Conference.  If you wish to be considered for this ABC examination award, please watch your e-mail for more information and a link to the application several months prior to the meeting.


PLEASE NOTE: The application is for the Ed Rhodes Scholarship award only. The ABC requires you to pass their requirements and complete an application before you take any exam – their applications are due 60-90 days prior to a scheduled exam. You MUST submit the application and necessary forms to the ABC prior to sitting the exam! ABC application information can be found here.
