Pueblo County high school seniors invited to apply for scholarship

PUEBLO, Colo. - Attention high school seniors in Pueblo County! 

The County Sheriffs of Colorado, Inc. (CSOC) is awarding a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving student this spring. 

CSOC, the state Sheriff's Association, established the scholarship program in 1978. Since then, the effort has continued as an expression of the sheriff's confidence in and respect for education and training. 

Applications are available online or at the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office at 909 Court Street. 

The deadline to submit applications is Friday, Feb. 23. 

Any legal permanent resident of Pueblo County enrolled in, or applying to a vocational training program or institution of higher learning in 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. 

Applications will be reviewed by a local citizens' committee appointed by Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor. The recipient will be selected based on criteria established by CSOC to include leadership, merit, character and involvement, and career purpose. 

This is the 40th year the CSOC has made such scholarships available. 

A scholarship will be awarded in more than 30 Colorado counties this year. 

For more information, contact your local high school or Yvette Robinson at the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office at 719-583-6407 or robinsony@pueblocounty.us.
