Selfless Act of Giving Mississippi Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

Attorney Matthew Lott began his career as a defense lawyer for large corporations, and even sometimes cities, facing defective products, unsafe premises, and other personal injury cases from individuals. Along the way, Matthew Lott decided that people and their families are what truly matter to him, so he opened his own law firm to help those in the Gulf Coast area with their family and personal injury cases. This is his way to give back and better his community.

The Selfless Act of Giving Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship award available to one student who gives back to their community. For this scholarship, we are asking that applicants write an essay describing a time they acted as a volunteer to better their community and the impact it had on the patrons, the organization, and them personally. Our hope is that this scholarship will encourage students to get involved in their communities in whatever capacity they can. No effort is too small when it comes to helping others.


Applicants must meet the following criteria:

A) Applicant must be a U.S. citizen currently enrolled or about to attend an accredited community college, undergraduate, or graduate program within the United States

B) Academic achievement as reflected by a minimum 3.0 GPA.

The applicant must then write a 750-1,000 word essay explaining how volunteers are essential to help the community and how volunteering has had a positive effect on your life.

Application Process

In order to apply for the Selfless Act of Giving Scholarship, an applicant must submit the following items on or before October 31, 2021:

A) A Resume, including up to date contact information

B) A current academic transcript, clearly stating a cumulative GPA

C) A 1,000-word essay describing the student's volunteer efforts and the impact this volunteer work had on the community.

The scholarship will award $1,000 to one student to be used to help them achieve their educational goals.
