Being blessed enough to graduate from college, as well as law school, Billings and Barrett recognize that while many people may have the talent and fortitude to go onto higher education, many lack the opportunity to do so simply due to their family situation.
And yet, a select number of Americans are able to overcome those obstacles and become the first member of their family to go off to college. But, while they were able to walk the difficult road to get there, there is still a difficult road ahead.
With that in mind, to help them on that road, Billings and Barrett are excited to introduce their First in Family Scholarship, designed to support individuals who want to further their education and are the first members of their families to attend college.
The scholarship award amount will be $1,000.
Eligibility and Selection Criteria
The scholarship is open to any student presently enrolled in an accredited community college, undergraduate, or graduate program in the United States. This includes incoming first-year college students who are either high school graduates or in possession of a GED.
