About the Volunteer Service Scholarship
The spirit of volunteerism is what makes communities strong. The team at Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC is looking to pay it forward to a law student who is a shining example of how volunteering can benefit not just the volunteer, but the greater community.
“The lawyers who leave the greatest mark on the world operate from a place of selflessness,” said attorney Joshua Farmer, partner of Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC. “We want to invest in a soon-to-be lawyer who has made it their mission to selflessly give themselves to others.”
We want to hear about how your volunteerism has benefited you, your community, and others. You can do this by describing your position, the actions you undertook, and how you were able to benefit those around you. The winning essay will be well-written and clearly detail why an applicant deserves to be considered for the scholarship.
