County Sheriffs of Colorado, Inc. will award a $500 scholarship to a Montezuma County student next spring.
Scholarship announcements have been mailed to all high school offices in the eligible counties and to all Colorado higher education institutions. Applications are available online at coloradosheriffs.org, or at the Montezuma County Sheriff’s office, 730 E. Driscoll St.
Applications will be reviewed by a local citizens committee appointed by Montezuma County Sheriff Nowlin, and a selection will be made on the basis of criteria established by CSOC. This criterion includes leadership, merit, character, involvement and career purpose. Any legal permanent resident of Montezuma 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.
