Sheriff Bobby Webre wants to let everyone know about the Louisiana Sheriff’s Scholarship Program. This scholarship will help deserving Louisiana students further their education and training with resources made available through the Louisiana Sheriff’s Honorary Membership Program.

Bursaries of up to $500 each will be awarded to graduating high school students from each parish where the sheriff is affiliated with the honorary membership program.

Students can also apply for the Dawn Shivers Memorial Scholarship for up to $1,500. This scholarship was established in honor of Dawn Shivers, a retired employee of the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office. Dawn passed away in May 2013, fighting a long battle with cancer.

There are no restrictions on the purposes for which the scholarships are spent. The scholarships are not loans and will be given in the form of grants to cover rising tuition fees and related expenses in higher education. The only limitations are that applicants must be permanent residents of Louisiana; scholarships can be used in higher education in the state of Louisiana; and that students be enrolled as full-time undergraduates.

Full applications must be submitted by April 1! The winners will be announced in May.

Applications have been provided to all Ascension Parish Secondary Counselors and are available online.
