The Virginia Sheriff’s Institute Scholarship program was established to provide an opportunity for young people across Virginia to pursue an educational curriculum in law enforcement or criminal justice. The Virginia Sheriffs’ Institute’s Board of Directors has established the application process for students to review scholarships to assist in their education endeavors. The scholarships are available to students in jurisdictions where sheriffs participate in the Virginia Sheriff’s Institute fund raising efforts. The scholarship is limited to students attending Virginia colleges and universities.
The application deadline for the 2015/2016 school year is May 1, 2015. Applications may be downloaded from https://vasheriffsinstitute.org/scholarship/ or they can be picked up at the Sheriff’s Office administration office.
