Magnolia Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

At Braddock Law Firm, we have a great appreciation for the beauty of the nature around us. From the trees, flowers, and fields throughout Mississippi, we believe that one’s connection to nature can gain vast insight into our world. Recently, we have admired the younger generations’ love of nature and their drive for protecting our environment to preserve our planet’s future. As nature works together in its ecosystem, we are inspired to work in our community to create meaningful changes for those around us. That is why we are proud to announce our 2023 Magnolia Scholarship.

As residents of Mississippi, we deeply connect with our state flower, the Magnolia. Driving through Mississippi, we are lucky to see Magnolia’s growing and realize how lucky we are to see such beauty in our daily lives. We are looking for incoming college students or graduates curious about the world around them for this scholarship. We are looking for applicants to reflect on the natural beauty of their homes and how it shaped their lives. Applicants are asked to describe the natural beauty surrounding them, share a time when they were in awe of nature, and explain its effect on them.

The deadline to apply for this scholarship is February 1, 2023. Once this deadline passes, we will carefully review all applicants, and one student will be selected to receive an award of $1,000.
