Motivation in Law Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: May 31, 2021

At Kyle Peiter, PLLC, we believe that law has the ability to shape the world and make a difference in an individual's life. When attorney Kyle Peiter was young, he obtained legal counsel that left him feeling as if his case was unimportant. This frustrating experience left a sour taste in Kyle's mouth and made him question his worth as a client. Kyle would eventually grow up and become an attorney himself, and this memory serves as motivation to ensure that all of his clients leave his office trusting that their attorney cares about them and confident that they are more than just a case number.

In order to help support those who are pursuing careers in law to make a positive impact on people's lives, we would like to introduce the 2021 Motivation in Law Scholarship.
