Are you currently or will you be enrolled in a Virginia college or university? Are you pursuing a degree in the field of criminal justice? If you answered "yes" to both of these questions, then you are eligible to apply for a college scholarship from the Virginia Sheriffs' Institute (VSI) Scholarship Program. Scholarships are available to both full- and part-time students.

As part of the application process, Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey A. Kincaid must submit a letter of recommendation on behalf of the applicant. To obtain a letter of recommendation, please email Lieutenant Steve Elbert or call 703-246-3251. [TTY 711 for hearing impaired.]
