Military Service Scholarship (ID 3956)
- Start Date:
- Many of the attorneys at Tully Rinckey are former and retired military personnel who understand what the life of a service member requires. Military service often comes with sacrifices and life experiences that shape men and women across our country and we want to hear these stories.
As a way of recognizing individuals who have served in the military, Tully Rinckey would like to introduce The Military Service Scholarship. Through this scholarship, we hope that students with a military background and students who have family members that serve in the armed forces, will confidently share their stories of how military service helped shape their life. In a well written 750-word essay, please discuss the hardships you faced, sacrifices you have made, or opportunities you have earned through your military service. If you haven’t served personally, but your life has been shaped by the military service of a family member, you are also encouraged to share your story with us.
