At The Law Offices of Joel J. Kofsky, we understand how challenging it can be to meet the costs of an undergraduate or a graduate education. Students and their families can expect to spend tens of thousands of dollars on their education, which can be a huge financial burden. Between the costs of tuition, fees, books, supplies, and living expenses, students are often faced with taking out large student loans in order to fund their education which can take years to pay back.
We believe that a good education is a valuable investment for the future and that financial limitations should not be a barrier to achieving that goal. To that end, we are pleased to provide financial assistance for students who are currently attending or are planning to attend college or graduate school.
We will be offering a $1500 scholarship, beginning in the year 2016, which we will award to a student to aid with their college or graduate school costs.
How do I apply?
In order to apply for the scholarship, students should submit an essay between 500 and 1,000 words to firstname.lastname@example.org. The essay must address the following topic:
The United States experiences millions of car accidents and other motor vehicle accidents every year, many resulting in serious injuries to the drivers and their passengers.
Write an essay describing what safety precautions and traffic laws should be emphasized and how you plan to educate the public on the importance of these precautions and laws.
Please write your essay in a 12-point font, double spaced, and submit your essay either as a Microsoft Word document or as a PDF file.
In addition to your essay, please write a brief paragraph describing the school program you are attending or are planning to attend. The scholarship is open to students pursuing all degrees or majors in any field.
The selection process
Once all submissions have been received, we will select three finalists based on the content of the essays. We will post the finalists on our website and on our social media pages. It then becomes your job to promote your efforts by sharing your essay through your own social media pages. Because of the increasing presence of social media in every field, it is key that you learn to exercise this resource to your advantage, no matter what career you choose to pursue.
