Who Can Apply: Scholarship applicants must be enrolled in an American post-secondary educational institution (community college, undergraduate college, graduate school, etc.)
Submission: Your essay must be between 500 and 1,000 words in length, not including the title, contact information, works cited page, etc.
“Picture yourself on the last day of your career as a lawyer. You’re standing at your desk, placing treasured keepsakes into cardboard boxes, looking at the newly bare walls of your office. What is it that you want to be looking back on when that day comes? What are the proud accomplishments you hope to be remembering when you turn the lights off for the last time?”
Be realistic. Talking about your career as a Supreme Court judge is no more impressive than discussing your goals as a real estate lawyer. A successful essay will make your personal interests known, and your passion felt.
