County Sheriffs of Colorado Scholarship Program

Prowers Sheriff Badge


Prowers County Sheriff Jim Faull announced that County Sheriffs of Colorado, Inc. (CSOC), the state Sheriff’s Association, will award a $500 scholarship to a deserving Prowers County student this spring.  CSOC established the scholarship program in 1978.  Since then, this effort has continued as a meaningful expression of the sheriff’s confidence in and respect for education and training.  CSOC considers this an investment in the future and believes that our membership is helping to provide deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society. 

Scholarship announcements have been mailed to all high school offices in the eligible counties and to all Colorado higher education institutions.  Applications are available online at, or at the Prowers County Sheriff’s office, which is located at 103 East Oak in Lamar. 

Sheriff Jim Faull explained that is the 35th year that County Sheriffs of Colorado has made such scholarships available.  A scholarship will be awarded in more than thirty Colorado counties this year.  Applications will be reviewed by a local citizens committee appointed by Sheriff Jim Faull, and a selection will be made on the basis of criteria established by CSOC.  This criterion includes leadership, merit, character, involvement and career purpose. 

Any legal permanent resident of Prowers County enrolled in, or applying to, a vocational training program or institution of higher learning in the State of Colorado as a full or part-time student is eligible to apply.  There are no restrictions as to the course of study or training which may be pursued, and no restrictions are placed upon applications by reason of race, creed, age, sex or national origin.
