It's truly amazing to see people across the world lend a hand to someone going through a challenging or difficult time. As personal injury lawyers, we are passionate about helping individuals experiencing hardship and would like to recognize others doing the same! The Ye Law Firm will honor those who have helped someone through a hard time from the goodness of their heart with no intention of getting something in return.
Being continuously inspired by the generous members of our community, we are proud to announce The Ye Law Firm Generous Heart Scholarship!
This scholarship was created to encourage students to find ways to express generosity and compassion to friends, family, or total strangers in their community. We are looking for students to discuss a time when they stepped up to help someone and how that experience changed their life for the better. We would also like to hear from you on ways that we can be more compassionate and generous in our daily lives and within our community.
The scholarship winner will be chosen based on the criteria outlined below and will be awarded $1,000 towards their higher education goals. The deadline to apply is November 30, 2021.
