CSOC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

County Sheriffs of Colorado, through its Honorary Membership program, is proud to award approximately thirty $500 scholarships every academic school year!

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 the program has continued as a meaningful expression of the sheriffs’ and CSOC's respect for education and training. We consider these scholarships as an investment in the future of Colorado's communities.
