As lots of high school seniors will hit the home stretch of their formative school years and will shortly begin the final semester of high school, lots have turned their attention to college and how they expect to finance the venture.
The Caddo Sheriff's Department wants to help in that regard. Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator has announced the availability of a $500 college scholarship for a Caddo Parish graduating high school senior.
The scholarship is 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 Louisiana institute of higher education.
Applicants must be eligible for admission to the school indicated on their application.
The deadline to apply is March 19. Completed applications should be mailed to the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Media Relations Office, 501 Texas Street, Shreveport, LA, 71101, or can be delivered in person to the Sheriff’s Office at 505 Travis Street, 7th floor.
