The Jamaur Law Foundation is excited to announce that we are offering a $1,500 scholarship opportunity to high school students in The District, Maryland, and Northern Virginia areas with a GPA of 3.0 or above. The Jamaur Law Foundation Scholarship is open to students who are graduating in 2023 with a concrete plan to attend a higher education institution. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be residents of the designated locations where the scholarship is being offered and complete the listed requirements. The deadline for the scholarship application is May 1st, 2023!
A brief essay (1000 words max) that answers one of the following questions (a or b):
What does generational wealth mean to you? And how do you plan on educating yourself and others to become financially literate?
What does it mean to be a good student/teammate on the field, in the classroom, and the community? And how do you plan to give back to your community?
In each application, we’ll be looking for a clear definition of (a) generational wealth or (b) a good teammate (depending on the question you choose to answer). The essay should have a clear action plan of “how,” good organization/flow (i.e., how focused/structured is the essay?), and correct language.
A copy of your report card (to be eligible, students must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher)
An acceptance letter from a higher education institution (to be eligible, students must be attending a higher education institution)
