In 2014, Keyser Law, P.A. created an undergraduate scholarship program to provide financial support to students working towards a career in the legal field. We strive to positively change people’s lives by advocating for them during life’s most important and significant challenges. Great students will someday make great advocates, and we hope this scholarship program supports that endeavor.
The 2014 scholarship award amount is $1,500.00. We received outstanding essay submissions from schools across the country, including the University of California Los Angeles, the University of Georgia, Florida Gulf Coast University, State University of New York (New Paltz), the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, Northern Arizona University, Prairie View A&M University, Benedictine College, Sam Houston State University, West Texas A&M University, the University of Tampa, the University of New Haven, and more.
We used a blind review system keeping all student names and universities confidential until one essay was chosen as the winner.
2014 Scholarship Essay Title: “Rigged: From Suspicion to Verdict, the United States Criminal Justice System Disadvantages People Accused of Crimes.”
2014 Scholarship Recipient: Matthew Van Grinsven, University of Minnesota
