College Scholarship Program

The college scholarship program was established by the Youth Assistance Foundation Board of Directors to assist outstanding former members of the MCSO Explorer Scout Post in furthering their education in preparation for a career as a sheriff’s deputy, sworn police officer or detention officer. The scholarship is awarded twice each year for the fall semester and spring semester. The funds are directed to defer the cost of tuition, fees and text books with applicants meeting strict selection requirements. Offering the scholarship is also a recruiting tool for the Explorers.
