Los Angeles Immigration Lawyer Scholarship 2019

 

The Los Angeles immigration lawyers at our firm are pleased to announce that we are accepting applicants for the 2019 Los Angeles Immigration Lawyer Scholarship! The firm serves people of the Los Angeles and surrounding communities by helping people achieve their citizenship goals by earning green cards, visas, and citizenships.  As a way to give back to the community we provide a scholarship to an existing or aspiring foreign-born student, or child of a foreign-born person (regardless of legal status) to offset the cost of higher education.

We see how impactful higher education is for the future leaders of the country and by helping to support the community we serve we’re able to help build a brighter tomorrow.  We are particularly encouraging applicants from students without traditional sources of financial assistance including:  undocumented immigrants, DACA recipients, and students currently in the green card application process.  For the start of the 2019 school year we will give our a $1,000 Scholarship to a student in need based on the quality of their application.
