Applicants must email their completed essay as a WORD DOCUMENT to scholarship@keyserdefense.com. Essays submitted in any format other than Microsoft Word (such as RTF or PDF) will not be accepted. Applicants must also submit a cover letter separate from the essay as a Word document with the following information:

Applications can also be mailed to Keyser Law, P.A. at 400 South Fourth Street, Suite 806M, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55415.

The required essay word count of 2,000 to 3,000 is for actual words, not letter characters. Titles, headings, and citations do not count towards final word count. The essay body must contain at least 2,000 individual words and no more than 3,000 individual words. All essays are checked for authenticity. Plagiarized essays will be rejected.

The scholarship award is sent directly to the recipient’s college financial department. Awards are NOT mailed directly to students. Before awarding the scholarship, the recipient’s school and major will be verified.

Who Can Apply?

Any undergraduate student enrolled in a four-year college or university program in the United States may apply. To be awarded the scholarship, the student must still be enrolled in a four-year college or university program in the upcoming fall semester. Students should not apply for this scholarship if they will graduate in the spring semester, and therefore will not be enrolled in school in the fall semester. Exceptions will be made for graduating college students who are enrolled in law school for the upcoming fall semester.
