To support and encourage students pursuing higher education, Lawyers of Distinction founded the Lawyers of Distinction Scholarship to recognize one outstanding student and provide them the resources needed to advance in their higher education.
Each year the scholarship will award one student with a $1,000 scholarship.
You are eligible for this $1,000 scholarship if you meet one of the following criteria.
• Are a current college or graduate student that is not yet in their final year of studies
• A high school senior that has already been accepted into a college or university
1. Write a 600-word essay answering the question, “Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking, and what was the result?”
2. Fill out the form below completely to be eligible for the scholarship.
Once the application period has concluded, one of our Scholarship Committee members will review all applications and select one winner to receive the $1,000 scholarship.
The winner will have two weeks to claim their scholarship, so the amount can be sent to their school’s financial aid department. There are no fees associated with applying for this scholarship.
The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2021. We will contact the winner no later than March 15, 2021.
By submitting a scholarship essay, you’re permitting Lawyers of Distinction to use your first name and essay for marketing and promotional purposes.
Good luck to all who apply!
