$500 County Sheriffs of Colorado scholarship application open to Weld County students  – Greeley Tribune

County Sheriffs of Colorado will award a $500 scholarship to a Weld County student next spring, Weld Sheriff Steve Reams announced on Wednesday.

County Sheriffs of Colorado mailed scholarship announcements to all Colorado higher education institutions and high school offices in eligible counties. To apply, go to or pick up an application at the Weld County Sheriff’s Office at 1950 O St., in Greeley.

County Sheriffs of Colorado will award scholarships based on standards including leadership, merit, character, involvement and career purpose.

Eligible students must be legal permanent residents of Weld County enrolled in, or applying to, a vocational training program or higher learning institution in the state as a full- or part-time student.

There are no restrictions as to the course of study or training people plan to pursue, according to a Weld County Sheriff’s Office news release. The application process cannot restrict anyone based on race, creed, age, sex or national origin.

In 1978, County Sheriffs of Colorado, the state sheriffs association, established the scholarship program. The “investment in the future” has continued since as an expression of the sheriffs’ respect for and confidence in education and training, according to the release.

The association believes its membership helps provide “deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society.”

Thanks to County Sheriffs of Colorado, scholarships will reach students in more than thirty Colorado counties this year, the release said.

Hey i am Arif
I have a love for wildlife and in particular birds as they are so easy to get a close look at. I love to talk about birds, research them, go birding, birdwatch in my backyard and keep a few as pets. I wanted to share this love of birds with everyone so you can also appreciate these fascinating creatures.

I attend bird walks and talks whenever I get the chance so that I can learn more from the experts. There is always something new to learn or see with birding.

After studying a natural sciences degree I then entered the corporate world working for online travel companies. We now live in a forest and near a beach and I have not looked back since. You can usually find me out paddleboarding or kayaking or hiking through the forest, always with some binoculars!

I am here to help you find all the information you need about bird identification, birding tips, backyard bird watching, bird facts with guides, and free printables.
