Adams & Bischoff, a criminal defense law firm in Charleston, SC, proudly represents people who haven’t been given a fair shake in life. As a result, our attorneys have dedicated their lives to providing their clients with a fair shot in court. Another area that we are passionate about assisting in is higher education. One of the many challenges people in our society face is obtaining access to higher education. With the rise in tuition costs across the country, many students struggle to pay for their education. We want to do our part to change that.
Our goal is to extend a scholarship to a student who also has had to overcome obstacles to be where they are today. Applicants are asked to submit a well-written, 750-word essay on the challenges they have faced, and how they have overcome them. The person with the most thoughtful and well-articulated essay will be awarded $1,000 to help finance their education.
To be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must be currently enrolled in college, graduate school, or GED holders about to attend a college within the United States. Applicants must show good academic standing by holding a GPA of 3.0 or higher. The recipient of this scholarship will have an eloquently written essay and will meet application requirements.
