Glen Lerner Gives Back Community Service Scholarship
The partners at Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys believe that one of the most important things we can do is to lead by example and serve one’s community by prioritizing empowering young people to also participate in their communities and helping them to fulfill their full academic potential.
While any law firm obviously wishes to be known for excellent legal representation for those in need of it, it is also important for Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys to be known for being a local, responsible and compassionate member of the community that cares about the local neighborhood and its residents.
It is because of this commitment to people and the local communities we serve, that we are very proud to announce the inaugural Glen Lerner Gives Back Community Service Scholarship
Commitment to Service
This scholarship will award $1,000 to the student who best demonstrates what their community service experience has meant and what giving back to their community means to them.
The scholarship will be awarded to the student whose personal essay best describes their commitment to community service and what their experience with community service has played and will play in their academic career.
Scholarship Eligibility Criteria
The Glen Lerner Gives Back Community Service scholarship is available to anyone who is currently pursuing a course of study at any duly accredited community or junior college, undergraduate or graduate degree program anywhere in the United States. High school graduates or GED holders who are about to embark on college-level studies, are also eligible.
Strong candidates for this award will be able to fully demonstrate their dedication to serving their community, as well as showcase personal examples of community service undertaken even in the face of personal, financial, or legal hardship.
