Selfless Parent Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: November 30, 2021

The attorneys at Capital Family Law Group know all too well that every day parents make selfless sacrifices for their kids, whether it's sacrificing their time, their money, or something else to make sure their children are well taken care of.

One way some parents help their kids is by providing financial support for higher education. We know how hard and stressful this can be, so we decided to offer a scholarship to help relieve some of the financial burdens on students and their parents. The Selfless Parent Scholarship will award a $1,000 scholarship to a student who best shares how their parent has made sacrifices for them throughout their life, and how these sacrifices have benefited the student.

The best submissions will discuss examples of how the applicant's parent(s) have made sacrifices to help the applicant succeed in life. Examples can include but are not limited to, driving the applicant to after-school activities, buying a present for the student that helped them discover their passion, or sending the student to a new school to enhance their learning.

Eligibility

A) The scholarship is open to any current high school senior, college student, or graduate student who is a legal resident of the United States residing in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia and who is enrolled in a two to a five-year post-secondary institution for the spring 2021 semester.

B) Employees of Capital Family Law Group, their immediate families (children, parents, siblings, and spouses), and persons living in the same households of such individuals (whether related or not), are not eligible to apply.

C) Candidates for the Selfless Parent Scholarship should have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher and be in good overall academic standing.

Application Requirements

A) The candidate must submit a 750-1,000 word essay response to the prompt: Discuss how your parent has made sacrifices for you or has otherwise shown selflessness to help you succeed in life. How did those sacrifices directly benefit you?

B) The candidate must submit a professional resumé that lists their experience, both professional and academic.

C) The candidate must submit a transcript from their current school. High school students must also submit proof of acceptance to their college or university with their high school transcript.

The recipient of the Selfless Parent Scholarship will be chosen during the month following the scholarship deadline.
