The Keith Williams Law Group Semi-Annual Scholarship

Description: 

The Keith Williams Law Group Semi-Annual Scholarship seeks to help students who have fought through adversity in their lives in order to better themselves through education.  Understanding that, for many possible reasons, not everyone has been a straight A student with perfect test scores, we seek to help those who have had difficulty in school and fought through it—whether it be the result of a difficult home life, socio-economic disadvantages, learning disabilities, ethnic/racial/gender or other biases, just plain stubborn orneriness and misbehavior early in life, or any other reason.

Whatever issues you have overcome in the past (and might be continuing to overcome at the present), those issues do not determine your future.  We at the Keith Williams Law Group are living proof of that, and the Keith Williams Law Group Semi-Annual Scholarship therefore seeks to help you as you work to overcome whatever issues you might have faced and to create a bright, successful future for yourself through education.

The Keith Williams Law Group Semi-Annual Scholarship provides a $1,500 scholarship, with two winners to be chosen each year, 1 per semester.  Each winner will receive $1,500 to use toward pursuit of their higher education.

Requirements: 
  • High School seniors who have been accepted to a college or university.
  • Currently enrolled students in any college or university, including graduate/professional schools.
  • No minimum GPA required to qualify.
  • Applicants must have overcome adversity in their lives and difficulty in school.
  • One entry per person, per semester.
Application Process: 
  • Applicants must submit an essay of no more than 800 words written by the applicant that explains the adversity in your life and difficulty in school that you have overcome and fought through to get where you are today, and how your continuing education will help you continue to create your own bright future.
  • Submit your essay to the website below. Include your full name, a contact phone number, the name of the high school you are currently attending or graduated from, and the name of the college/university in which you are currently attending or have been accepted into.
