ABC Law Centers Scholarships
Our firm is pleased to offer two annual scholarships. The first supports students with cerebral palsy, while the second is offered to law and public policy students who are focused on advocating for people with disabilities. Having a disability is not required for the law and public policy scholarship, but we welcome and encourage students with disabilities to apply!
Our scholarships open for applicants on January 1, 2021.

The ABC Law Centers Cerebral Palsy Scholarship is for financial assistance designed to simultaneously increase awareness about cerebral palsy (CP) and celebrate the achievements of those with cerebral palsy.

The ABC Law Centers Disability Advocacy Scholarship
The ABC Law Centers Disability Advocacy Scholarship is also in the amount of $1,000, and will be awarded to an undergraduate, graduate, or law student planning to pursue a law or public policy career focused on disability advocacy.
