The LSA (Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association) Scholarship Program will award scholarships providing assistance to worthy Washington Parish students in furthering their education and training with resources made available through the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Honorary Membership Program.

Scholarships of a maximum of $500 each will be awarded to one graduating high school student. There are no restrictions on the purposes for which scholarships are spent. The scholarships are not loans and will be awarded as gifts to defray the rising costs of tuition and related expenses in higher education. The only limitations are that applicants be permanent residents of Louisiana; scholarships be utilized in higher education within the state of Louisiana; and students be enrolled as full-time, undergraduate students.

Completed applications must be submitted to the sheriff of the parish of the applicant’s permanent Louisiana resident by April 1, 2021. Further, applicants must be eligible for admission to the school indicated on the application. The award will only be paid for attendance of high learning within the state. All scholarships winners will be announced by May 1, 2021.

“I am pleased to be able to bring this scholarship to eligible Washington Parish students who are bound for higher education,” Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal said.
