Ring Ring Ring. Hello, it’s the Future calling to tell you about a big opportunity: the Make Your Mark Scholarship is back! We are offering one Washington state student and one out-of-state student each a $500 award for the best essay about how they will impact the world.
Our law firm is devoted to representing individuals who’ve suffered personal injuries and giving back to the community that we believe in. From helping people receive compensation for costly medical bills to ensuring our clients have a fair day in court, we hope to make their future just a little bit brighter. That is why we have based our Make Your Mark Scholarship on looking forward to the future and want to hear how the young people of today plan on shaping the world to come.
As attorneys, we have seen firsthand how finances can easily define an individual’s well-being and how just a little help can impact their lives in a big way. That is why we’ve chosen to give back with the Make Your Mark Scholarship. We hope our contribution to your goals, dreams, and education will have a lasting impact on not just your life, but everyone you encounter. By investing in you, we are investing in the future.
We want to know how you plan on making your mark on the world. What does that mean? Well, we want to know how you define it. Whether its engineering the smart car of tomorrow or helping patients recover from traumatic injuries, we want to hear how you will shape the future. There is no big or small, right or wrong answer to this question, so long as your short essay is personal to you. In 500 to 1,000 words, how do you want to make your mark on the world and how will a college education help you do that?
