Against All Odds Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Jan 31, 2023

Adams & Bischoff, a criminal defense law firm in Charleston, SC, is proud to represent many people who haven’t been given a fair shake in life. As a result, our attorneys have dedicated their lives to giving their clients their fairest shot in court. Another area that we are passionate about assisting in is higher education. One of the many challenges people in our society face is obtaining access to higher education. With the rise in tuition costs across the country, many students struggle to pay for their education. We want to do our part to change that.

Our goal is to extend a scholarship to a student who also has had to overcome obstacles to be where they are today. Applicants were asked to submit a well-written, 750-1,000 word essay on the challenges they have faced, and how they have overcome them. The person with the most thoughtful and well-articulated essay will be awarded $1,000 to help finance their education.
