DiBella Law Offices, P.C., Announces 2021 Writing the Future Scholarship
As the new year revs up, we at DiBella Law Offices, P.C., once again look to how we can aid students in achieving a higher education. Given the dire straits the world has been in, it is important to remember the importance of investing in students and their success. That is why we are bringing back our annual Writing the Future Scholarship for 2021! Students from across the United States are invited to apply for a $1,000 scholarship for post-secondary education.
Apply by April 8, 2021
The team at DiBella Law Offices, P.C., firmly believes in giving back, which is why we have based the Writing the Future Scholarship around good deeds. To apply for this scholarship, you must submit a 500- to 1,000-word essay explaining how you performed a good deed. Previous winners shared stories of how they raised awareness about social issues in their communities and helped bullied classmates, and you are more than welcome to read their essays for inspiration.
All applications are due by April 7, 2021, and any submission after that date will not be considered. Once we have finished reading your essays and reviewing your applications, we will reach out to all finalists and share their names on April 21, 2021. Finally, on May 5, 2021, we will announce the winner of the Writing the Future Scholarship.
