San Antonio Personal Injury Law Firm Relaunches $2,000 Need-Based Scholarship Program

Students in Need Scholarship Program

Alford & Associates is excited to announce that it has relaunched its scholarship program for the third consecutive semester. The firm’s Students in Need Scholarship provides $2,000 in awards to winning students. The award may be put toward academic expenses for the Fall 2023 semester. The scholarship was designed to serve students who have a demonstrated financial need and who have overcome substantial personal obstacles in their path to a college education.

The Students in Need Scholarship is available to students with an annual family income of less than $50,000 who are interested in pursuing a degree in Pre-Law or Humanities, such as Political Science or English. The scholarship is intended to support the legal industry professionals of tomorrow. Students must be enrolled in an accredited college for Fall 2023 and must be a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident to be considered.

Considerations in selecting a winner will include each applicant’s demonstrated financial need and personal resilience in the face of adversity. To apply, students must submit a video essay responding to the prompt, “Imagine you have graduated college and begun your career in the legal field. How will you use your skills to help others who are in need?” Applications will be evaluated based on the quality of their response to this prompt. Students must also enclose a statement of financial need.
