College scholarships are available from both the North Carolina Sheriffs' Association and the National Sheriffs' Association.
The North Carolina Sheriffs' Association offers ten college scholarships each semester to North Carolina residents who are full-time undergraduate students majoring in criminal justice, one for each college that offers a criminal justice program in the University of North Carolina System. Applicants must get a letter of support from their home county Sheriff.
Recipients of the scholarship are chosen by the financial aid office at the constituent institution of the University of North Carolina System that the student plans to attend or is currently attending. Applications are available from the school's financial aid office, and after completion, should be returned to the school's financial aid office.
