Duffy Law Scholarship
At Duffy Law, LLC, our Connecticut criminal defense attorneys value education and helping those in need. We also understand that school can be a significant expense and know how hard it can be for students and their families to make ends meet. Between housing, tuition, books, and school supplies, the cost of attending college or graduate school can easily rise into the tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.
In an effort to make things a little easier for students and their families, we are pleased to be offering a yearly $1,000 scholarship to individuals who are currently attending (or have been accepted to and will be attending) an accredited American college or university as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student.
In order to apply, applicants must submit a 500+ word essay on the following topic:
“What are the three most important things America’s colleges and universities can do to significantly reduce the incidence of sexual assault on campus – and why?”
