The Minnesota Sheriffs’ Association (MSA) has announced the commencement of the Law Enforcement Scholarship Program for 2017. The MSA Board of Directors has established a scholarship fund for the awarding of up to 15- $600 scholarships for this year. These scholarships are due to the coordinated efforts of the 87 Sheriffs of the State of Minnesota.
MSA gives special recognition to the financial needs of students attending the peace officer skills course, or one of the two or four year law enforcement degree colleges. MSA recognizes the importance of pre-entry training for people considering law enforcement as their career choice. “I would like to encourage law enforcement students from Scott County to take advantage of this scholarship opportunity to aid in their education” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.
Scholarship awards will be announced at the 2017 MSA winter conference. Application forms and a statement of procedures are available on the MSA website and at the student’s local county sheriff’s office. Scholarships are only available to students currently enrolled in one of the following three categories:
- is currently enrolled in a mandated POST Skills Program, or
- is in the second year of a two year law enforcement degree program, or
- to any student who is in the third or fourth year of a four-year law enforcement degree program.
