It is time to apply for the 2022 Carl Rachlin Scholarship. The COBA Scholarship Fund provides $1,000 Awards! In its early years, the scholarship was only awarded to the dependents of Correction Officers. Through generous donor support, the Fund has expanded its scope and now offers this scholarship to Correction Officers who are continuing their education as well as Retirees. Carl Rachlin was a Labor and Civil Rights attorney who was a champion for racial equality. This scholarship is being awarded in recognition of his work.

The strength of our scholarship Fund is reflected by the unprecedented $871,000 in scholarships that have been awarded over the past 26 years. Since its inception in 1996, the COBA Scholarship Fund has provided a total of 871 scholarships.
