Scholarship Fund

In 1996, COBA announced that a scholarship fund had been established for the children of Correction Officers. This was the first time in the history of COBA that a scholarship fund had been established to assist the children of Correction Officers. The funds provide financial assistance of $1,000 yearly to the children and membership to encourage educational achievements. To date, COBA has awarded over $391,000, to active and retired officers as well as their dependents. The Scholarship Fund over the last two years has successfully raised approximately $100,000
