College Scholarships for Students with Disabilities, and Veterans & Children of Veterans
As part of our efforts to give back to our nation’s veterans, and to support the growing population of civilians who live with disabilities, we are pleased to sponsor the Marc Whitehead & Associates Law Firm College Scholarship Program.
Each year, our law firm awards financial scholarships to military veterans and their children, and to students with disabilities, to help them achieve their goal of furthering their education.
What College Scholarships Do We Offer?
We offer two scholarships, and each applies to post-secondary education (college or university level):
- Frances & Earl Perry Memorial Veterans Scholarship: An award of $5000 will be presented to one military veteran, or a college-eligible child of a military veteran.
- Flora Marie Jenkins Memorial Disability Scholarship: An award of $5000 will be presented to one non-veteran student with a disability.
Scholarship funds may be used to assist with tuition, books and related school expenses at qualifying undergraduate institutions, and in the curriculum of their choice.
