The Law Offices of Tragos, Sartes & Tragos
Scholarship Amount: $1,000 Deadline: August 31, 2019
Laws shape the nation and can affect your life in ways you are often unaware of. People often come to lawyers because they don’t fully understand the legal situation they now find themselves in. Although they can sometimes be complicated, and it may seem like there’s a never-ending stream to learn and understand about the legal system, we believe that having a grasp of our legal processes is fundamentally important. We’ve seen first-hand the effects that laws can have on everyday Americans.
To help a deserving student reach their academic goals and impress upon them the importance of lawmaking, the Law Offices of Tragos, Sartes & Tragos is excited to offer a privately funded scholarship essay contest. The scholarship will award $1,000 to one deserving student who presents a creative, practical, and substantive answer to our essay question.
