If you are a student that has had your life shaped significantly by a family member, such as a parent or sibling, we want to hear about it! Our team at the Law Office of David E. Gordon is thrilled to offer The Nuclear Family Scholarship to allow students to share how a member of their immediate family has shaped them into the person they are today.
As a law firm that strives to treat each client we help as if they’re family, we understand how important the effect of having family in your life can be. That’s why we wanted to use this scholarship as an opportunity to get students to think about how their family has shaped them into the person they are today. It can be easy to take family for granted, so it is our hope this scholarship will help students who are going through life-defining experiences in college to reflect on their past relationships so that they may use that reflection to continue shaping themselves into strong-minded young adults.
Our team will award one winner $1,000 to help with their education costs. While we will likely receive many strong applications from deserving students, we will select the individual who we feel best shares their story of how a member of their immediate family has shaped them into the person they are today. Applicants must also meet the following eligibility requirements.
The recipient of The Nuclear Family Scholarship will be chosen during the month following the scholarship deadline.
To apply for this scholarship, candidates must email their full application (including their essay, resumé, and transcript) to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 28, 2021. Any applications sent after this date will not be considered.
