Mediation & Conversations Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

The team at Dolan Divorce Lawyers knows how complicated it can be to navigate a familial issue, no matter how big or small. We pride ourselves on our approachability, ability to listen intently to our clients, and capability to deliver desired results with limited stress and optimal ease. It's not always easy to talk through a problem when it arises, especially if you are put in the middle of a tough situation suddenly. We are proud to assist those who approach these challenges with a calm and organized mindset, and feel that these qualities deserve recognition. That is why we are excited to offer our first ever Mediation & Conversations Scholarship!

This $1,000 scholarship was created to promote mindfulness and maturity in the communicative sphere, whether that be between family members, friends, in the workplace, or simply through daily life. In 750-1,000 words, we invite students to write about a time when they had to mediate between people in their lives, the communication tools which they used, and what they learned from the experience. We are looking for examples of why mindful communication is so vital to build and maintain healthy relationships
