SCHOLARSHIP update:

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.

Complete details and Application: Available @ arashlaw.com/arash-law-scholarship/
