2021 Opportunity to Grow Scholarship
The attorneys at the Williams Law Group, LLC understand firsthand the benefits a college education can provide both academically and socially. Education opens doors that might otherwise be closed, providing the ability to grow professionally and develop social bonds that may last a lifetime. That is why we were excited to offer a $1,000 scholarship to help a student pursue their educational goals.
At Williams Law Group, we have experienced the benefits of higher education, and we view academics as a way to contribute positively to society. We understand that college is less accessible to some due financial restrictions. We believe strongly in giving back to our community and do not want to see students give up on their dreams because they are unable to pay for school or supplies.
The Opportunity to Grow Scholarship was a $1,000 scholarship available to students who met the scholarship eligibility requirements below and who best described in a 750-1,000 word essay what community means to them and how they demonstrated a commitment to both their school and larger community.
