Impact on the Community Scholarship
New York attorneys at Silberstein, Awad & Miklos, P.C. strive to bring the highest quality of service and ethics to every case. Following this mission, we are pleased to announce our Impact on the Community Scholarship. We would like to recognize someone who has devoted their time to improving someone else’s life in their community by awarding them a $1,000 scholarship.
If you’ve made a positive impact on your community, we’d like to hear your story. We believe there are many ways to make an impact, because even the smallest actions can make a difference. Whether that is starting a community garden, volunteering at an animal shelter, helping kids with their homework or donating supplies to a homeless shelter.
Interested applicants should write a 750-1000 word essay, discussing a time when you made a positive impact on someone or something in your community, and how that experience changed you as a person.
The scholarship is open to anyone enrolled in an accredited college or university within the United States. High school seniors who are graduating before the deadline and have been accepted to or enrolled in a graduate program are also eligible.
Eligible candidates must also be able to demonstrate their strong commitment to helping others and be able to describe personal examples.
Students interested in applying for the Impact on the Community Scholarship must send the following:
- A current official or unofficial academic transcript
- A resume with updated contact information
- A 750-1000 word essay discussing the impact you’ve made on someone or something in your community.
Send your transcript, resume, and essay as separate attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 31, 2019.
Application emails must include the subject line: “[Applicant’s Name} – Impact on the Community” to be considered.
Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. We look forward to reading your stories!
