Law and Pre-Law Scholarship
From expensive legal fees to long drawn out cases, we have a legal system that thrives off an uneven playing field. Especially in cases where the plaintiff is unable to work, the defendant has unfair leverage. While they may not be able to use that leverage to completely avoid accountability, they often use it lessen how much their negligence will cost them.
That’s a major issue with our legal system that we am to fix. If you feel the same, we want to give you a chance to change the world.
At Provident Legal Funding, we are passionate about promoting access to justice, and that means making the legal system more accessible. There’s no better place to start than with the future generation of legal professionals. That’s why we are proud to offer Provident’s Law School and Pre-Law Scholarship.
In order to make what we do possible, we need an industry full of lawyers that are just as passionate as we are. We need attorneys that work on behalf of victims to hold guilty parties responsible. If you believe you will be one of these major assets to our legal system, then you are the perfect candidate for this scholarship.
Tell us what makes you such a candidate. What are you passionate about? How can you serve the less fortunate, especially victims of negligence? What are you doing now to advance those same ambitions? We’re looking for future lawyers that are already pushing for the same ethics in their own communities, and we want to help them bring it to a larger scale with a scholarship worth $1,000.
