SARCON 2015 Scholarships

The CSRB Board of Directors has approved 24 partial scholarships of $ 250.00 from the Peter Peelgrane Memorial Fund, as an additional member benefit.

A reasonable estimate of the expenses for conference registration, housing, and food is somewhere around $ 500.00, so this amounts to roughly a 50% scholarship. Teams who receive awards can further divide their award among, multiple attendees, if they so choose.

Awards within a category will be “first come-first served” until the money is exhausted. Recipients will be notified on a rolling basis, as soon as awards are approved, but in all cases by May 1, 2015.

Reimbursements up to $ 250.00 will be made by August 1, 2015 to those recipients who have previously been notified of their award and have submitted receipts by July 15, 2015.

Preference in awards will be given in the following, order:

February 15, 2015 - Applications will be accepted from current (2015 dues paid) CSRB “SAR Team Members” whose Team did NOT receive funding for the SARCON conference through their Sheriff’s Office 2014 SAR Fund Year-End Grant. There is maximum of two awards per SAR Team.

March 15, 2015 - Applications will be accepted from current (2015 dues paid, individual or organization) CSRB Associate members.

April 15, 2015 - Applications will be accepted from current CSRB SAR Team members who did receive DOLA money for the conference.
