A college education gives students the chance to study their field of interest that will help them with their careers later in life. However, money is often a major obstacle for most students. Whether it’s paying for tuition, room and board, or even textbooks, the price can deter people from pursuing higher education. At DBD Law, we believe that money shouldn’t get in the way of one’s educational career.

We’re offering a $1000 scholarship once a year to students who are in their first year or plan to start college or graduate school. We believe that helping our students now will give them the opportunity to create a better world for all of us.

We’re currently accepting applications for Fall 2018. Applications are due by Sunday, July 15th, 2018.

What are the Scholarship Qualifications?

  • Students must be in or planning to enter their first year of college or graduate school.
  • The school needs to be in the United States.
  • You must show proof that you’re in your first year. Provide a digital copy of your college acceptance letter and include the college letterhead.
  • Applications are due by Sunday, July 15th, 2018.
