At The Law Office of Mike Campbell, we feel it’s vital to help our next generation of entrepreneurs, leaders, and professionals pave the way toward a bright future. We felt there’s no better way to help young students obtain their dreams than by offering a scholarship to new and first-year college students. Our scholarship will be held once a year during the Fall semester.
The current open submission period is for Fall 2018. Applications are due by Sunday, July 15th, 2018.
Scholarship Guidelines and Details
- Students can be attending or planning to attend any college or graduate school in the United States.
- All applicants must be attending or plan on attending for their first year.
- As proof of your first-year status, you will need to submit a digital copy of your acceptance letter—complete with the college letterhead—from that college.
- All applications for the current semester are due by Sunday, July 15th, 2018.
To apply, you’ll need to submit a 500+ word essay on the following topic:
How can college students avoid the temptations of alcohol and getting behind the wheel after drinking?
Once the application period closes, we will determine a winner based on the following factors: feasibility, originality, creativity, and the applicant’s level of knowledge in the topic as well as their ability to write a well-crafted essay. We aren’t necessarily looking for an “A”-grade essay from an English or law student, but rather an essay that explores the topic uniquely.
By submitting your essay to us, you agree that it may be featured on our blog. We will publish the winning essay as well as a couple of the top contenders at our discretion. Published essays may appear with minor edits in place.
To submit your application and essay, email us the completed essay, a digital copy of the acceptance letter from your college or graduate school verifying your first-year status, and some brief information about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the body of your email, please include your name, address, phone number, and the name of your current/planned school. Feel free to include a brief paragraph telling us about yourself and your career-related goals, but this part doesn’t need to be very long. The essay should be attached as either a .DOCX, .PDF, or .RTF, or included in the body of the email.
Send all applications and questions to email@example.com. We look forward to reading your applications!
