The Slater | Grant Veteran Scholarship
The personal injury attorneys of Slater | Grant are committed to supporting our veterans.
There are 21.8 million veterans in the United States. These veterans have sacrificed unselfishly for our country. Unfortunately, many times their service and sacrifice are forgotten. Veterans hold a special place in the hearts of the personal injury attorneys at Slater | Grant. Both founding attorneys dedicate a portion of their practice to helping veterans with legal needs. Attorney J. Scott Slater is a contributing member of the ABA Military Pro Bono Project, an organization which assists active military by providing access to pro bono civil lawyers, and attorney L. Javan Grant routinely helps local veterans who are in need of legal services.
To show continued appreciation and commitment to our veterans, Slater | Grant has established a $1,000 scholarship for an individual who can best describe how growing up with a veteran in their family, having a close relationship with a veteran, or being a veteran themselves, has influenced their education and career goals.
To be eligible for the Slater | Grant Veteran Scholarship, applicants must be currently enrolled in an accredited community college, undergraduate, or graduate program in the United States. They also must show excellent academic standing with at least a 3.0 GPA. The scholarship recipient will have demonstrated the impact of knowing or being a veteran has had on their education or career aspirations.
To apply for this scholarship, please submit:
- A current resume
- An academic transcript
- A 750 – 1,000 word essay discussing the impact of a veteran on education and career aspirations. The essay can be either about a veteran in the family, or the writer him or herself may be a veteran.
The deadline for this scholarship is September 30, 2018.
Please send your complete application to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “[Applicant’s Name] — The Veteran Scholarship” by the September 30 deadline to be considered.
