Scholarship Available for First Year Law Students
The lawyers at Bond and Botes have established a scholarship for first-year law students. They wish to help students who have already been accepted to law school and are now facing the financial realities of getting a law degree.
The $2,000 Financial Hardship Scholarship is open to any U.S. citizen attending the first year of law school this fall, with an undergraduate cumulative GPA at or above 3.0. Applicants are asked to submit a short essay describing how they have overcome financial difficulties in their lives.
The application submission deadline is July 16th, and a copy of an acceptance letter from an accredited U.S. Law School must accompany the application. The scholarship will be awarded in mid-August, with payment made directly to the student's school, to be applied to tuition.
