Scholarship Program Guidelines
The Illinois Sheriffs’ Association plans to award 105 scholarships of a minimum $500 during the 2006-2007 academic year. This effort is a meaningful expression of the Association’s confidence in, and respect for, education and training.

The Association’s goal is to provide assistance to worthy students in furthering their education and training with resources made available through the Associate Membership Program of the Illinois Sheriffs’ Association. Illinois sheriffs consider this scholarship program to be an investment in the future which will provide for better communications with the residents of the communities served.

The sum of $52,500 has been allocated from the 2006 budget to carry on the program for the 2006-2007 academic year. The scholarship will be awarded statewide with distribution based on the number of Associate Members in participating counties. One scholarship will be provided for each county with an Associate membership (l-500 members). One additional scholarship will be awarded per every 500 Associate Members in the county. Scholarships will only be awarded in counties where the sheriff has authorized the Associate Membership Program.

Scholarship funds axe intended to assist students with the cost of tuition, fees and books only. No funds can be used for housing or any other incurred expenses. If a lesser amount (less than $500) covers all tuition, books and fees required of the student chosen, that lesser amount will be awarded.

The scholarship funds will be paid directly to the school on behalf of the recipient with the instructions that 1,2 is to be credited to the fall semester and 1/2 to the spring semester. However, books must be purchased from the learning institution’s campus bookstore and directly billed through the institution’s bursar’s office. Funds cannot be used for summer courses and must be used during the regular 2006-2007 school year. The recipient is responsible for having the school notify the ISA office with written verification of full-time enrollment before any scholarship funds will be paid. The ISA must be contacted by the school, in writing, before August 15, 2006. If this deadline is not met, the scholarship will be forfeited. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.

There shall be no restriction on any applicant by reason of race, age, creed, color, sex or national origin. The only limitations are the following:


1) applicants be permanent Illinois residents.

2) scholarships are to be utilized at institutions of higher learning within Illinois.

3) students must plan to be enrolled as full-time students.
Only the immediate family of the sheriff is ineligible to apply. Families of sheriff’s office employees are eligible to make application.

Completed applications shall be submitted to the sheriff of the county of the applicant’s permanent Illinois residence by the March 15, 2006 deadline. A sheriff’s directory is available on this Web Site. Applicants must be eligible for admission to the school indicated on the application. The award will only be paid for attendance to certified schools within the State of Illinois.

Applications received in the sheriff’s office on or before March 15, 2006 are to be reviewed by a committee of nonpartisan citizens selected by the sheriff. That committee of citizens will review, evaluate and select the winner(s) and two alternates to represent their county.
The names of ALL scholarship winners will be announced by May 1, 2006.

Those who receive scholarships during an academic year may apply again in another year.



However, such applicants will be considered along with all others who apply in the county.

If for any reason, a recipient relinquishes a scholarship, that scholarship will be granted to an alternate from the same county which was selected by the local committee.
