02/21/17 - Scholarship Opportunity
The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office Benevolent Association is pleased to announce its second year of college scholarship opportunity. This year we will be awarding five $500 scholarships to eligible high school seniors that reside in Fond du Lac County and will be attending college next school year. Application deadline is Wednesday, April 12th, 2017. Click on application link below.
The principal purpose of the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office Benevolent Association is to enhance the general welfare of the community and to promote the continued growth and overall health of the community. The Benevolent Association raises money to fund opportunities like a scholarship through events including our annual spring cookout, chili contest, steak sandwich sale at Fondue Fest, and other events throughout the year. In addition to the new scholarship offering, the Benevolent Association has conducted food drives to fill local food pantry shelves, assisted the Salvation Army with their Brown Bag Lunch program and donated funds to other worthy causes in Fond du Lac County. We invite the public to follow the Sheriff’s Office by liking us on Facebook. All Benevolent Association fundraisers are announced on the Facebook page, and we invite citizens and businesses to participate in these fundraising events so we can continue to provide opportunities like this scholarship to our community.
