CSOC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

*** ONLY IN-STATE SCHOOLS ARE ELIGIBLE ***

Program Philosophy Statement
To carry out our commitment to the Honorary Members of the association, County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) established a scholarship program in 1978. Since then, this effort has continued as a meaningful expression of the sheriffs’ confidence in and respect for education and training. CSOC considers this an investment in the future and believes that our membership is helping to provide deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society as a whole.

County Sheriffs of Colorado, through its honorary membership program, awards approximately thirty $500 scholarships every academic school year.

Eligibility
This year, each Sheriff’s Office on the odd-numbered year list will accept scholarship applications through February 26, 2021, for awards applicable to the Fall 2021/Spring 2022 academic year.  If you are a permanent resident of a county on the odd-numbered school year list below, please apply by the February 26, 2021, deadline.
