ARASH LAW SCHOLARSHIP [DEADLINE: JUNE 1, 2020]

Exceptional students should worry about nothing more than studying to reach their goals in the field of law. When those students merely want to help others such as victims of catastrophic car accidents through the maze that is the legal system, they should not be barred simply because of a lack of funds.

When a student demonstrates that they are dedicated to becoming a professional in the field of law, they are devoting their lives to something they believe it. The choice to become an attorney at law is not the most affordable decision to make. That is why Arash Law is ready to help and encourage such choices by potential law students.

Eligibility:

  • All applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents
  • All applicants must have at least one semester of school left to complete

Award: $1,000

Requirements:

  • All applicants are required to have a cumulative 2.5 GPA or better
  • All applicants must be active in the community

Submission components: (1) Applications must be submitted with a 1000-word essay describing which field of law they’re interested in pursuing and why, plus what they plan to do with their degree; and (2) all applicants must submit an unofficial transcript.

SCHOLARSHIP update:

CARR & WEATHERBY SCHOLARSHIP FOR AT-RISK YOUTH [DEADLINE: JAN. 1, 2020]

Here at Carr & Weatherby, we care deeply about the homeless population in Atlanta. We have created a Scholarship for At-Risk Youth, which we hope can help create a brighter future for deserving students pursuing their dreams. While one may associate homelessness with older adults, youth may also find themselves without a secure place to live. When a young person has no home, or worries about where they will sleep that night, education often becomes an afterthought. That’s why we have created the Carr & Weatherby Scholarship for At-Risk Youth. We want to give back to the community by offering help to students who are homeless or who have experienced homelessness, including at-risk, foster care and/or youth with critical financial needs.

Eligibility: You are either accepted to or currently enrolled in an accredited college or university within the United States

Award: $1,000

Requirements: Minimum 3.0 GPA

Submission components: (1) Official copy of transcript; (2) completed application; and (3) essay (no more than 250 words) on one of these topics:

In what ways has homelessness, or the threat of being homeless, shaped your goals and priorities, including your education? How have you overcome a particular challenge associated with being homeless/at risk for homelessness? In what ways would a college education change your life and, in turn, the lives of your loved ones and others around you?
