Sheriff’s offices accepting scholarship applications
Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator and Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington have announced the availability of a $500 college scholarship for a graduating high school senior in Caddo and Bossier parishes.
The scholarships are made available each year through the Louisiana Sheriff’s honorary Membership Program to help defray the costs associated with higher education.
One scholarship is awarded in each parish where the sheriff participates in the Honorary Membership Program.
To qualify for a scholarship, the recipient must be a permanent resident of Louisiana, plan to enroll as a full-time undergraduate student, and agree to use the scholarship at a Lou isiana institute of higher education.
Applicants must be eligible for admission to the school indicated on their application.
The deadline to apply is March 21 for Caddo Parish students and April 1 for Bossier Parish students.
Completed applications should be mailed to the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Media Relations Office, 501 Texas St., Shreveport, LA 71101, or can be delivered in person to the sheriff’s office at 505 Travis St., seventh floor, in Shreveport.
Scholarship winners will be announced by May 1.
