FLCC student receives NYS Sheriffs’ Institute Criminal Justice Scholarship

A criminal justice major at Finger Lakes Community College has been awarded the 2022 New York State Sheriffs’ Institute Criminal Justice Scholarship. Delayne Reagan, who hails from Victor, New York, has maintained a 4.0 GPA at FLCC and has been admitted to SUNY Cortland for her continued education in criminal justice.


The NYS Sheriffs’ Institute Scholarship Program for Criminal Justice Majors awards a $250 scholarship to a single student studying criminal justice, police science, or a similar program at each community college in New York State, as well as SUNY Canton, annually. The Scholarship Program’s objective is to assist young people throughout the state in pursuing a criminal justice education.

Each September, nomination forms are distributed to the Criminal Justice Departments of New York’s community colleges, and a member of the Criminal Justice Faculty nominates students to receive the scholarship. The selection process takes place during the fall semester each year, and the awards are announced in early November. This program is limited to students attending New York’s Community Colleges and SUNY Canton, who are majoring in Criminal Justice, Police Science, or a related program, according to the nomination process and policies.
