Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl announced the Law Enforcement Scholarship Program for 2014 is now open.

The Minnesota Sheriff's Association (MSA) will be awarding up to 15 $600 scholarships for this year. These scholarships are the result of the coordinated efforts of the 87 sheriffs in Minnesota.

The members of the MSA give special recognition to the financial needs of students attending the peace officer skills course, or one of the two-year or four-year law enforcement degree colleges, therefore the scholarships are only available to students currently enrolled in one of the following three categories: Mandated POST Skills Programs; in their second year of a two-year law enforcement program; in their third or fourth year of a four-year college criminal justice program.

The scholarship committee, in making its selection of awards, intends on achieving representation from all geographical areas of the state. Application forms and a statement of procedures are now available at the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office or online at www.mnsheriffs.org . Applications must be returned to the sheriff's office no later than Oct. 15.
