Montrose, COLO.—The Montrose County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce that Montrose County students are eligible to apply for the County Sheriffs of Colorado’s (CSOC) $500 scholarship. CSOC, the State Sheriff’s Association, established the 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 helps to provide deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society.
Scholarships will be awarded in approximately 30 Colorado counties this year. Applications will be reviewed by a local citizens’ committee appointed by Sheriff Rick Dunlap and Undersheriff Adam Murdie. A selection will be made on the basis of criteria established by CSOC. This criterion includes leadership, merit, character, involvement and career purpose.
“This is a great program and we are pleased to be able to offer this scholarship to Montrose County students,” said Undersheriff Adam Murdie.
Applications are available online at www.csoc.org. Any legal permanent resident of Montrose County enrolled in, or applying to, a vocational training program or institution of higher learning in the State of Colorado as a full- or part-time student is eligible to apply. There are no restrictions as to the course of study or training which may be pursued, and no restrictions are placed upon applications by reason of race, creed, age, sex or national origin.
