CMIT To Fund Scholarships for Corrections Personnel

Sam Houston State University's College of Criminal Justice, in partnership with the Correctional Management Institute of Texas (CMIT), will provide scholarships for personnel in juvenile and adult institutional and community corrections agencies. CMIT will provide tuition costs each year for selected employees accepted into the Masters of Criminal Justice Leadership and Management Online/Weekend Programs.

"We are excited to fund these scholarships," said Doug Dretke, Director of CMIT. "This will provide an opportunity for corrections professionals across the State of Texas to enhance their knowledge and leadership capabilities while they continue to serve within this critical public safety arena."

Applicants for the scholarships must first be accepted into the MS in Leadership and Management program and be active professionals in the criminal justice field with a minimum of five years' experience. Continued financial support of selected students is contingent upon their maintaining at least a 3.3 grade point average and making satisfactory progress toward completing the degree program in two years.
