Lerner and Rowe Scholarships

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 10

At Lerner and Rowe, we started a scholarship program to assist low-income students in overcoming financial obstacles to help them reach their post-secondary educational goals. We believe that we should use the skills, contacts, and good fortune our legal team has built over the years to give back and benefit others. Each of our Lerner & Rowe Scholarships will be awarded to students who share our mission to change the world for the better through acts of respect, courage, kindness, academic achievement, and leadership.

Read on to learn more about the scholarship application and eligibility requirements.

Scholarship Amounts

Five (5) lucky students from Phoenix (AZ) and Chicago (IL), three (3) from Las Vegas (NV), Albuquerque (NM), and Tucson (AZ), and two (2) from Merrillville (IN) will be awarded a $1,000 USD scholarship to use for their tuition expenses.

Who's Eligible

We'd like to help students who are in genuine need of funding for his or her studies. Thus, students must show economic hardship to warrant consideration for the awards.

Our scholarship program is open to high school seniors or first-year undergraduates who are legal U.S. residents that are enrolled or will be enrolled in full-time degree programs at an accredited college or university in the states of Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Indiana, or Illinois.

Candidates must provide evidence of a cumulative high-school GPA of at least 3.0 (copy of official transcript is sufficient).

Each of the Lerner & Rowe Scholarship awards are to be used exclusively for college and university tuitions. A check for $1,000.00 will be made payable to the recipient's college or university to cover these expenses and they are expected to submit receipts in accordance with IRS regulations.

Lerner and Rowe Scholarship Application Process

Candidates may only apply for one scholarship. To apply, each applicant must meet the following criteria.

A) Write an essay of 1,000 words or more on the topic of "How I Will Use My Degree to Make the World a Better Place." Proper grammar and style will also be evaluated.
