Honorary Deputy Sheriff's Association Announces Scholarship for 2017

Scholarship applicants must reside in Teller County, CO., and apply to a school in the state.


Woodland Park, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/20/2017 --As a community service in support of high school students applying for college, the Honorary Deputy Sheriff's Association (HDSA) announced their scholarship program.

"We are again proud to assist students that want to further their education by offering this program," said Michael Perini, HDSA President. "The student selected can be justly proud of their achievements meriting recognition."

The scholarship award is for $500 for the academic year 2017-2018.

It is administrative policy to make all scholarship payments directly to the Colorado school in which the student is enrolled. Therefore, when tuition is due, present a copy of this letter to the finance office and ask them to invoice us at the address provided.

Upon receipt of the school's formal invoice, the HDSA will promptly remit payment directly to the school.

"Should you receive another scholarship covering the full cost of your education, or if your plans change and you do not attend school in Colorado (as required under this program), please inform us by September 1, 2017," Perini said.

The award may then be given to an alternate from Teller County, as this scholarship is only good towards an in-state school. This award will be paid only during the 2017-2018 academic year.
