Gainsberg Law Annual Scholarship Award -- $2,500
It can take only one second for your life to change forever – something our clients know all too well. At Gainsberg Law, we fight for the futures of our clients, to help them regain what is lost, and to plan for their new lives ahead. We can offer this assistance because of the civil justice system, which allows people to seek redress when a wrong has been committed. To maintain that system, however, we need strong, passionate and dedicated lawyers who promise to uphold the law and protect the system.
We want to help those young lawyers pursue their dreams and protect the justice system. That is why we are proud to announce the Gainsberg Law Annual Scholarship Award. Every year, we will select a student who is, or will be, enrolled in an accredited university or college in the Fall semester of the upcoming academic year. The winner will be announced in June 2019. Upon the student’s request, the non-transferable award can be paid directly to the school.
Scholarship award: $2,500
Eligibility and requirements:
To be eligible for the award, applicants must submit the following no later than April 1, 2019:
- Proof of enrollment for the upcoming academic year
- 2 recommendations from a member of the faculty or staff at the university or school, or from a teacher from the previous year (for incoming students only)
- One essay up to 1,000 words on why you are interested in the law
- Academic Transcripts from the current academic year, 2018-2019
The scholarship will be awarded, and the student notified of his or her selection, by June 2019.
