Sheriff's office participates in scholarship program
January 13, 2017
The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is currently accepting applications for the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) scholarship. The scholarship program awards approximately thirty $500 scholarships every academic school year state-wide.
Any permanent legal resident of Boulder County who plans to enroll in a vocational training program or institution of higher learning in the state of Colorado as a full or part-time student for the 2017-2018 school year is eligible. Those who have received scholarships in previous years may apply again and be considered for an additional award.
Applications may be obtained here, or by contacting the Sheriff’s Office. All applications must be submitted to the Sheriff’s Office no later than February 24, 2017. Applications can be submitted to [email protected] or in person at the Sheriff’s Office, located at 5600 Flatiron Parkway, Boulder, from 8:00-5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, except for federal holidays.
There are no restrictions as to the course of study or training pursued. There are also no restrictions placed by reason of race, creed, color, age, sex, or national origin.
To carry out their commitment to the Honorary Members of the association, the 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 their membership is helping to provide deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society as a whole.
Questions or inquiries regarding the CSOC scholarship program can be directed to Michelle Crain at [email protected] or 303-441-4605.
