- Start Date:
- We cannot understate the significance of continuing education. Unfortunately, there are many children whose life experiences potentially jeopardize the educational opportunities available to them. Children are our greatest resource. It is of the utmost importance that as a nation, we invest in the future of all children. We must consider those whose futures are at risk due to unfavorable circumstances at home.
For this reason, Eskew Law, LLC is proud to offer a $1,500 scholarship for college-bound or current college students who are children of convicted felons.
