Benson & Bingham understand the rigors of law school accompanied with the expense to become an attorney, and felt obliged to help alleviate the financial strain with their annual scholarship offer. The firm is pleased to announce that we ended up awarding not just a grand prize of $2,000, but two additional $250 runner-up awards due to the quality of the essays we received.
For 2018, we elected to keep the same eligibility requirements, however we've elected to continue to award two additional runner up awards. In addition, the essay questions have been changed to provide a fresh set of circumstances with which to judge scholarship applicants.
In order to be eligible for the scholarship award, applicants must adhere to the following scholarship criteria:
A) Currently enrolled in or recently accepted to an accredited law school.
B) A United States citizen or permanent resident.
C) Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. A copy of your college transcript (unofficial) must accompany the application.
D) Proof of Law School acceptance or attendance must accompany the application.
E) Applications must be received electronically by August 31, 2018
