Scholarship recipients display attributes such as academic achievement, leadership, and character. Applicants must also be permanent residents of Louisiana and use the scholarship to seek a higher education within Louisiana as a full-time undergraduate student. 

A scholarship recipient is selected in all 64 parishes in Louisiana. Essynce Wallace was chosen as the alternate recipient if Savannah is unable to take advantage of the award.

Academic awards by the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Scholarship Program to Louisiana students demonstrates what the LSHMP is all about. This is one of our finest accomplishments. It invests in Louisiana’s future and gives something back to our community. This would not be possible without the kind and generous support of Union Parish’s Honorary Members.
