Entrepreneurial Scholarship (ID 3994)
- Start Date:
- We are pleased to announce the Simmrin Law Group Entrepreneurial Scholarship. This scholarship is our way of fostering the values that drive all of us here at Simmrin, and helping pass those values to future leaders. It is a $1,500 scholarship which will support one high-achieving, entrepreneurially-minded college student.
Simmrin Law Group was built on a spirit of recognizing opportunity, creating value, and lifting up those around us—principles that we believe all entrepreneurs share. This spirit has helped propel our organization to become one of the top law groups in California. Every day, we get to help those who have been hurt, are struggling, or have been wronged by the justice system. We know that we could not have achieved everything we’ve done if it weren’t for our own mentors who encouraged and supported our entrepreneurial drive. That is why it’s so important for us to give back to the next generation of rising entrepreneurs.
If you are a current or aspiring entrepreneur and meet the eligibility requirements below, we hope you’ll submit an application. We look forward to the chance to read your essay and award the first scholarship.
