The LSA Scholarship Program will award scholarships that provide assistance to worthy Louisiana students in furthering their education and training with resources made available through the Louisiana Sheriff’s Honorary Membership Program. The Honorary Membership Program, of which civilians are members, funds this project as well as other law enforcement initiatives.
A scholarship of a maximum of $500 will be awarded to a graduating high school student in Washington Parish. There are no restrictions on the purposes for which the scholarship may be spent. The scholarship will be awarded as a gift to defray the rising costs of tuition and related expenses in higher education. Stipulations are as follows:
- The applicants are permanent residents of Louisiana;
- The scholarship will be utilized in higher education within the state of Louisiana. Technical colleges are included;
- The student is enrolled as a full-time, undergraduate student. Applicants must be eligible for admission to the school indicated on the application.
“An opportunity for a secondary education can change a student’s life,” said Sheriff Seal. “We encourage seniors in Washington Parish high schools to apply for this scholarship because every little bit helps with the cost of tuition.”
Applications can be accessed online at https://www.lsa.org/scholarship. Completed applications must be submitted to Sheriff Seal’s office by close of business (4:30 pm) on FRIDAY, April 1st, 2022. Applications may be emailed to Chief Civil Deputy Brent Jones at email@example.com or may be hand delivered or mailed to the Sheriff’s Office at 1002 Main Street, Franklinton, LA 70438
The scholarship recipient will be announced on a date to be determined later.
