Elite Lawyer Is Now Accepting Applications for the 2021 Scholarship

on in Uncategorized

The Elite Lawyer rating service and directory recognizes outstanding attorneys across the United States who have demonstrated a commitment to the legal community. We are proud to support the next generation of legal professionals by sponsoring our second annual scholarship for students who are pursuing higher education and who would like to make a difference in their communities. Last year’s winner was University of Minnesota student Evan Bannow. While the world is still facing economic and health challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we at Elite Lawyer recognize that today’s college students need support now more than ever. In response to these uncertain times, we are encouraging all eligible students to enter for a chance to win a $500 scholarship that may go toward tuition or other educational expenses at the college or university level.

Who Is Eligible?

As a higher-ed student, you can apply for the Spring 2021 Elite Lawyer Scholarship if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at an accredited college or university within the United States.

  • Your education will continue through the Spring 2021 semester or beyond.

  • You are at least 18 years old.

  • Your current GPA is at least 3.0.

Applicant Criteria

In order to be considered, qualified applicants must submit either a 500-word essay or a 2-minute video presentation that answers the following question: What positive change are you working to bring to your community in the new year? 

While many have suffered losses this past year, whether it be a family member to COVID or perhaps a job layoff, it has also been a time of reflection for everyone. With in-person gatherings restricted and many events postponed or canceled, it is easy to feel discouraged. However, brighter days are ahead, so that is why we want to know what you are doing to enhance your life and those around you. By coming together, we can implement positivity during these unprecedented times. 

The deadline to apply is midnight CST on February 14, 2021. All applications will be carefully reviewed by our committee, and a winner will be selected based on these three factors:

  1. A commitment to making a positive impact in your community

  2. Thoughtfulness, originality, and creativity

  3. Quality of the essay, including organization, clarity, and grammar

The winner will be notified by March 1, 2021, and he or she may be featured on the Elite Lawyer website. If you have any questions, contact us at scholarship@elitelawyer.com. Best of luck to all of our applicants!
