Prosmushkin Law to Create $1000 semi-annual college scholarship program
The personal injury trial attorneys at the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin P.C. are pleased to announce they will be holding a semi-annual essay contest to select a recipient for a $1000 college scholarship. Times are tough, and the costs of higher education have never been steeper. The scholarship is intended to relieve a small amount of that financial burden, by subsidizing the costs of textbooks and supplies for one semester. Firm founder Greg Prosmushkin went on the record, stating, “I’m thrilled to be able to provide some much needed support to students who show initiative and potential in their application. We believe that every little bit helps.”
The essay contest will be held twice a year, intended to provide financial support for the spring and fall semesters. Winners will be required to submit proof of enrollment in an accredited U.S. college or university in order to claim their prize. Applicants of all ages and areas of study are welcome to apply for the scholarship. The contest is open to community college students, undergraduates, and graduate students alike.
Submissions should be 500 words minimum. The current essay prompt is as follows:
Write an argumentative and analytical essay of at least 500 words that discusses an issue of your choosing related to current immigration reform. The essay should address current immigration law and express the writer’s opinion regarding them, while using supporting evidence from credible sources.
Essays will analyzed based on the following 10 point rubric:
- 5 points- Argument strength
- 2 points- Grammar and style
- 1 point- Proper Citations
- 1 point- On topic
- 1 point- Creativity
Spring application deadline: December 17th
