The attorneys at Connecticut Domestic Violence Information Center are dedicated to assisting those in need. They understand the importance of giving back to the community and providing people with the support they need.
To show their appreciation for everyday heroes in our community, the Connecticut Domestic Violence Information Center is proud to offer the Good Samaritan Scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a student who exemplifies the characteristics that are embodied by a good samaritan. We are looking for a student who is helpful and giving towards others. Good samaritans are sympathetic and kind; usually showing up to lend a hand at times when most others will not. We are excited to have the opportunity to acknowledge a student who goes above and beyond in showing generosity to others.
The Good Samaritan Scholarship is open to all undergraduate, graduate, and law school students, as well as incoming college freshmen. Applicants must be enrolled at an accredited U.S. educational institution. The candidate must be in good academic standing with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
The following application materials must be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to be considered for the Good Samaritan Scholarship:
A) A current resume that includes up to date contact information and proof of charitable and volunteer experience
B) A letter of recommendation from someone who can attest to your charitable qualities
C) An academic transcript
D) A 500 word essay that identifies the applicant and describes the applicant's Good Samaritan characteristics as well as examples of acts of kindness towards others
