Kern County Sheriff's Reserve Association Scholarship
The Kern County Sheriff’s Reserves were first organized in 1939 to augment paid Deputies during the wartime emergency. This was an experiment born of wartime necessity that proved entirely successful. In 1940, 35 volunteer Reserves graduated from the first Reserve Academy. The Kern County Sheriff’s Reserve Association is a non-profit, volunteer organization made up of a very special group of men and women who are dedicated to public service and committed to improving the quality of life in our community. This scholarship was established by the Kern County Sheriff’s Reserve Association to support CSUB students majoring in Criminal Justice and that have a desire to make a positive change in the community.
