Minnesota Sheriffs Announce Scholarship Program

Thursday, August 25th, 2011 at 12:21 pm

Sheriff Robin Cole announced yesterday that the MSA Board of Directors has established a scholarship program for Law Enforcement students across the state. There will be 15- $600 scholarships for this year. These scholarships are due to the coordinated effort of Minnesota’s 87 Sheriffs.

The Members of the MSA will give special recognition to students in financial needs that are attending peace officer skill courses or one of the two or four year law enforcement degree colleges.

Application forms and a statement of procedures are available at the Pine County Sheriff’s Office. Scholarships are only available to students currently enrolled in one of the following three categories:

1. Mandated POST Skills Program.
2. In their second year of a two-year law enforcement program.
3. In their third or fourth year of a four-year college criminal justice program.

Students meeting these criteria are invited to obtain a scholarship application from their local sheriff’s office or online at www.mnsheriffs.org
