Bossier Parish, La — Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington is currently accepting applications from Bossier Parish students for a $500 college scholarship with the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Scholarship Program.
The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school student from Bossier Parish and is made available through the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Honorary Membership Program. There are no restrictions on the purpose for which the scholarship is spent, and it is awarded as a gift to defray the rising costs of tuition and related expenses in higher education. Applicants must be permanent residents of Louisiana, and the scholarship will be utilized in higher education within the state of Louisiana. Students must also be enrolled as full-time, undergraduate students, and applicants must be eligible for admission to the school indicated on the application.
Other Sheriffs’ Departments in Louisiana where the Sheriff is an affiliate of the Honorary Membership Program are also awarding scholarships within their parishes.
Students must submit their applications to the Bossier Sheriff’s Department by April 1, and the scholarship winner will be announced a few weeks later. To find out more, contact Deputy Mary Kerry at 965-3409.
