Do you want to pursue an education in the law? Black Wynn, a Phoenix personal injury law firm, is once again offering a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to defray a portion of the law school tuition for the winning applicant. The cost of a law school education is substantial in terms of time and money. Our firm understands this, and we are offering the scholarship to encourage those who would like to pursue a legal education, by easing to some degree the financial burden involved. We also believe that a legal education can provide the basis for making a difference in one’s community.
The Law School Scholarship
The scholarship will assist in the cost of law school tuition and will be paid to the school chosen by the winning applicant. There is no requirement that you be currently enrolled in law school at the time you apply for the scholarship, but you must use the tuition funds within a year of the award. The scholarship funds will be paid directly to the educational institution, which must be an American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law school.
Applications may be submitted by U.S. citizens who are or shortly will be attending a United States law school accredited by the ABA.
