TCSOA to Award 2018 Scholarships
The TCSOA Board of Directors voted to award four (5) $1,000.00 Scholarships. Three (3) $1,000.00 scholarships will be awarded to children of members in good standing and two (2) $500.00 scholarship will be awarded to members in good standing, and one (1) $1000.00 scholarship; the Warren P. Young Humanitarian Award, will be awarded to a member of the community. The deadline to apply is April 30th, 2018. Over the past several years, TCSOA has recognized the need to assist individuals with the ever increasing cost of education.
Five years ago, TCSOA added the Warren P. Young Humanitarian Award to be given to a member of the community in the name of Officer Warren P. Young who served Travis County as a Corrections Officer. Officer Young also served the community faithfully through his church and had an overwhelming impact on many youth in the community. His work provided a strong base for kids facing a multitude of issues within the community. Officer Young lost his battle with cancer on March 4, 2011. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is Monday April 30th, 2018 at 5 pm.
TCOSA is also in the process of expanding the Scholarship Program by soliciting and accepting donations and generating other revenue to support and sustain the program. If you would like to make a donation to the TCSOA Scholarship Fund, you can contact Michael Pietrowski at firstname.lastname@example.org or Christina Dail at email@example.com or any committee member.

Application and instructions can be found in the Scholarship Committee Resources section on the Member Home page the this site. Those who meet the requirements will be reviewed by the scholarship committee. The committee selections are final.
