(La Porte County, IN) - Sheriff John T. Boyd announced today that the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association (ISA) would again be awarding college scholarships to qualified high school seniors or college students pursuing a degree in criminal justice studies.
There will be approximately 40 scholarships for $750 apiece given to qualifying students throughout the state.
The ISA Scholarship Fund was established to receive, invest, and dispense funds to provide college scholarships to qualified students committed to pursuing an education and career in law enforcement, he said.
To qualify for one of these scholarships, Boyd said the applicant must be an Indiana resident, 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.
Applications needed to apply for the scholarships are available from your high school counselor or the LCSO. The scholarship application can also be downloaded from the ISA website: www.indianasheriffs.org. The applications must be completed and received by the ISA on or before April 1.
