Fighting for Justice Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Oct 31, 2022

Attorneys at the Barbieri Law Firm, P.C., believe sincerely in fighting for justice for all. Justice is a core value of democracy, yet injustice exists widely and affects many, even in democratic systems. Throughout time people have stood up to oppression and fought together to overcome and change those systems. Some of the biggest injustices we face today are racial injustice, voting rights, gender inequality, the dignity of human life, climate justice, and food insecurity. Unfortunately, the list goes on. The reality of these injustices is harsh and heartbreaking. However, we have seen that when people come together to fight against injustice, systems are forced to change and right their wrongs. When an injustice is corrected, the lives of the affected can improve a community and even the world.

People must continue to fight against injustice to ensure all beings are treated fairly and improve our communities. That is why we have created the Fighting for Justice Scholarship, to give back to students who share our beliefs and fight to preserve democracy. For this scholarship, we ask that students write an essay discussing what “Fighting for Justice” means and demonstrate how you have fought for justice.

The deadline to submit your application is October 31, 2022. To learn more about how to apply, continue reading below.
