Elliott Law Group Scholarship for Orphans
Elliott Law Group is proud to present the Scholarship for Orphans, worth $1,000.
It is estimated that, in the United States alone, there are 400,000 children who are orphans or otherwise displaced from family and in the foster care system. Around the world, the number increases to 140 million. For many teenagers in this situation, finishing high school may be a steep challenge, and college may seem wholly out of reach.
One of the biggest challenges for those in this kind of situation is finding a way to pay for school. While many college students rely on help from family members to pay for tuition, and other expenses, that is not an option for far too many people, especially those that have been orphaned or displaced from their family. At Elliott Law Group, we are intimately aware of the challenges that orphans and individuals otherwise displaced from family may face when they wish to go to college. That’s why we have created the Scholarship for Orphans. By easing at least some of the financial burden, we hope to see more people than ever realize they can achieve their dreams.
The Elliott Law Group Scholarship for Orphans is open to orphans and displaced individuals both in the United States and abroad. We understand this is a very sensitive topic for many people; any information submitted will never be shared with a third party, except what is required by the winner’s school.
