D'Amico & Pettinicchi Truth Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Sep 30, 2024

We at D’Amico & Pettinicchi know that searching for and parsing out the truth can be a difficult task. For personal injury or other legal matters, discovering the truth is of paramount importance as it is the difference between justice being achieved or a responsible party walking away unaccountable. Similarly, truth in everyday life has been under siege.

In an effort to highlight the importance and reward honesty in both the legal realm and in personal experiences, we are proud to  announce the inaugural D’Amico & Pettinicchi Truth Scholarship, a $2,500 scholarship available to all students trying to further their education through law school. In 750-1000 words, we would like to hear from you: How would you describe the importance of truth and honesty in the judicial system and the degree to which it is respected currently? In your experience, how does this compare to the role of truth in your own life and in society as a whole? Please read the eligibility criteria below and apply before the September 30th, 2024 deadline!

In your experience, how does this compare to the role of truth in your own life and in society as a whole?
  • Please note that all essays will be checked for AI writing. If AI writing is deemed present in the essay, the application will be denied.
  • The candidate must submit a professional resumé that lists their experience, both professional and academic.
  • The candidate must submit a transcript from their current law school. Applicants may submit an unofficial transcript from their current school, as well as the most recent official transcript from their prior school.
