The Union County Sheriff’s Office is very supportive of the young people in Union County who wish to pursue their college degree after high school. To assist high school graduates in their pursuit of a degree the Sheriff’s Office offers 3 individual $500 scholarships to high school graduates in Union County who wish to pursue careers in law enforcement at either the federal, state, or local level.
Students who are interested should fill out an application and return it to the Sheriff’s Office. A selection committee will meet in late April to review the applications and select the most qualified applicants to interview with the committee. Awards will be made at the selected students’ graduation or awards ceremony.
