Devante Lane Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

Devante Lane was a young and vibrant college graduate from Bronx, New York. He was extremely intelligent, full of life, thoughtful, and a loving son and friend whose personality and smile brightened every room. Devante was an exceptionally creative person passionate about art and fashion, always donning the latest trends.

On July 15, 2020, at the early age of 22, Devante was the unintended victim of gun violence in New Rochelle, New York. His once-promising future was cut too short due to this senseless act of violence. Devante's father, Jerome Lane, has been a dedicated and proud member of the law firm of Finz & Finz, P.C. for nearly 30 years – he has become part of our family. In honor of Devante, Finz & Finz, P.C. has established the Devante Lane Scholarship Fund to help young Bronx residents fund their college education in his memory.

The next generation of young New York residents who seek to promote education over violence is at the threshold of a new world that can be built with fresh perspectives and innovative ideas. Those young New York City residents who plan to attend or are currently enrolled in college can apply for the Devante Lane Scholarship Fund by submitting a written essay that addresses the following question:

The selection committee includes Devante's parents, Jerome Lane and Alison Hinds. The winner of the scholarship will be determined by judging the written essay submitted by each applicant.

Who Can Enter?

The scholarship fund is open exclusively to residents of New York City currently enrolled in high school or college. Applicants who are 17 years old or younger must provide parental consent to enter.
