Description:
At the Dickson Law Group, we understand the value of a college education as well as the financial difficulties many students and families may face in financing one. We understand from experience, attorneys have all attended nationally recognized educations, including Brigham Young University, Gonzaga, and George Washington University. Additionally, we appreciate the fact that we would not be where we are today without education and, importantly, not without the help and support of others. In an effort to help other aspiring young students realize their dream of obtaining a college degree, the Dickson Law Group is pleased to announce the creation of the annual Thomas L. Dickson $1,000 scholarship available to current college students or those planning on attending a college or university in the fall of 2018.
