The SCCOA Scholarship & Welfare Fund provides annual scholarships to the dependents of Suffolk County’s Correction Officers. In addition to providing scholarships this fund also assists in aiding the widows, widowers and eligible dependents of correction officers who have lost their lives while serving Suffolk County. Eligibility is defined as all widows, widowers and children of active correction officers who lose their lives while still active as a correction officer. Benefits are determined on an as need basis, by a majority vote of the Executive Board. Benefits provided to eligible beneficiaries vary on an as need basis, depending on, among other things, the availability of funds.
