Price Benowitz Social Justice Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 1

Our nation has a long-standing legacy of social justice-from the fight for women's suffrage, to the civil rights movement, to contemporary efforts to embrace all varieties of race, creed, and sexuality-but there is still much work to be done. Until everyone can benefit from the same rights, opportunities, and basic services, there will always be the need for ambitious and talented people to make progress on behalf of others who are less fortunate.

To further this vision of making the world a better and more equitable place, our firm offers a scholarship to individuals who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to social justice and community outreach. We recognize that education is an important foundation upon which positive, sustainable change can be built, and we are happy to help fund the educational endeavors of outstanding individuals.

By supporting the cause of social justice today, we are making an investment in a future that is brighter for everyone. As such, Price Benowitz LLP is proud to offer this $2000 scholarship to students pursuing college or advanced degrees of all types. This year, our scholarship is helping to raise awareness about the challenges individuals with disabilities have to meet and overcome each day.
