In 1989, the Pickens County Sheriff's Office established a scholarship fund to perpetually provide educational opportunities for officers and their children.  The goal of the scholarship fund is to help these individuals better equip themselves with the skills necessary to solve problems facing our community in the 21st century.

Over the past twenty three years, more than $233,000 has been awarded in scholarships.  These scholarships are made possible through concerned businesses and individuals that donated to the Sheriff's Invitational Golf Tournament.
