The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association will again be awarding college scholarships to qualified high school seniors or college students who are pursuing a degree in criminal justice studies. There will be approximately forty (40) $500.00 scholarships awarded to qualifying students throughout the state.

The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association Scholarship Fund was established for the purpose of receiving, investing and dispensing funds in order to provide college scholarships to qualified students who are committed to pursuing an education and career in the law enforcement field.

To qualify for one of these scholarships, the applicant must be an Indiana resident, must be 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 (12 hours).

Scholarship applications are available from your high school counselor, the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office or by writing to the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association, 147 East Maryland Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204-3608, and requesting an application form. The scholarship application can also be downloaded from the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association by clicking here.  The applications must be completed and received by the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association on or before April 1.
