The Kelly Law Team (KLT) has established a scholarship for an individual interested in pursuing his or her legal education. The scholarship is in the amount of $1,000, and will be applied to defray the cost of law school tuition.
Attending law school and entering the legal profession can provide a person with a number of benefits. Among those benefits is the ability to make a difference in people’s lives. Whether it’s choosing an area of practice that allows you to help people in their everyday lives, doing pro bono work, or engaging in community activities, a legal education can be the touchstone of a career that focuses, in part, on helping others.
How the Scholarship Works
The scholarship, in the amount of $1,000, is being offered to assist in the payment of tuition to law school. It is not required that an applicant be enrolled in law school at the time of the submission of his or her application. However, the scholarship funds must be utilized within one year after the date of the announcement of the winner. The $1,000 award will be paid directly to the law school selected by the winner.
The scholarship is open to citizens of the United States who are enrolled at, or who intend to enroll at a U.S. law school accredited by the American Bar Association.
Application and Selection of the Winner
The application must be submitted no later than February 22, 2018. The application includes
- the online form;
- a statement of not more than 100 words telling us why you want to pursue a legal education; and
- an (optional) essay of not more than 750 words discussing how you will use your law school degree to make a difference in the world.
The selection of the winner will be at the sole discretion of John Kelly, founder of the Kelly Team. Mr. Kelly’s decision will be made no later than March 22, 2018.
When you provide us with information, it becomes the property of the Kelly Law Team. We do not sell your information to anyone, nor do we disseminate the information to third parties other than to report on or publicize the scholarship or the KLT scholarship program.
