At GAR Disability Advocates, we believe that everyone, regardless of background or social status, is entitled to high-quality legal representation to fight for their rights. In order to fulfill the need for high-quality lawyers and legal professionals in the workforce, we are committed to helping students in need to afford higher education.
To help more students who are passionate about law pursue a degree, we are sponsoring an annual scholarship, awarded to one law student, to be put toward their law school costs.
We are asking students to write an essay of no more than 500 words on the following prompt:
How has someone with a disability affected you? This can be yourself or someone you know. If you are close to anyone who gets disability benefits, how would their life be different without those benefits?
The most compelling and well-written essay as judged by the GAR Disability Advocates Team will receive our scholarship of $1,000.
Applicants must be enrolled or accepted to an accredited law school in the United States as of the fall 2020 semester.
Applicants must submit the required information on or before October 15, 2020.
Applications must be received no later than October 15, 2020.
