The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association will be awarding college scholarships to qualified high school seniors or college students who are pursuing a degree in criminal justice.
There will be approximately 40 scholarships, each worth $500, awarded to qualifying students throughout the state.
The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association Scholarship Fund was established for the purpose of receiving, investing and dispensing funds to provide college scholarships to qualified students who are committed to pursuing an education and career in the law enforcement field.
To qualify for one of these scholarships, the applicant must be an Indiana resident, be a current member of the association or a dependent child or grandchild of a current member of the association, attend an Indiana college or university, major in a law enforcement field and enroll as a full-time student (12 hours).
“We have been privileged to present several of these scholarships to deserving Boone County students,” said Boone County Sheriff Ken Campbell. “If you have an interest in a criminal justice career, be sure to apply.”
Applications are available from high school counselors, the sheriff’s office or by writing to the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association, 147 E. Maryland St., Indianapolis, IN 46204-3608, and requesting an application form. The applications must be completed and received by the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association on or before Sunday, April 1.
