The Alabama Correctional Employee Support Fund (ACESF) is now accepting scholarship applications for the 2022 calendar year.

The application with all required attachments and submissions must be postmarked no later than January 31, 2022.

We ask that all Division Directors and Correctional Wardens ensure this e-mail is posted for those employees who do not have access to electronic mail.

The number of scholarship awards depends upon donations received by the ACESF, and the previous calendar year-end fund balance.

Scholarship amounts are $1,000 for undergraduate students and $1,500 for graduate students.  In addition, the ACESF will award a scholarship titled the “Charles and Doris Farquhar Memorial Scholarship” to a most deserving individual(s), to be selected from among the qualified applicants for the given calendar year.  The annual amount of this scholarship will be $2,500.  Previous award winners are eligible for $500 scholarships.

Official high school or college transcripts are considered along with test scores, grade point average, recommendation letters, extracurricular activities, and an essay describing the students career aspirations.

Thank you for your interest and support of the Alabama Correctional Employee Support Fund Scholarship.  We wish you continued success in your academic and professional careers.
