The Bishop Law Firm

2019 Educational Scholarship

At The Bishop Law Firm, we understand how important getting an education is. We also recognize how expensive it can be as well. Parents (and many times students themselves) have to pay for housing, books, tuition and meals up front. Some people have to work night jobs or attend school at night after work to be able to afford college. Most college expenses are paid for by loans which must be repaid after a student graduates. In an attempt to help students cover some of this cost, we are offering a $1,000 per year scholarship to one individual who is attending or planning to attend an accredited college or graduate school in the United States in the near future.
