New Frontier Immigration Law launches a $2,500 scholarship essay contest for students pursuing higher education.
New Frontier Immigration Law has launched its How I Make My Community Great Scholarship program, which will issue a $2,500 scholarship to the award-winning essay writer.
Students pursuing higher education (whether at the undergraduate or graduate level) who are interested in applying for the scholarship must submit a 500- to 1,000-word essay about how they have helped people in their community. The submission deadline is June 15, 2023.
About the How I Make My Community Great Scholarship
New Frontier Immigration Law created the How I Make My Community Great Scholarship as another effort to give back to the community and help a deserving student achieve their academic goals.
The essay topic focuses on:
- How individuals have helped their own communities
- How individuals would personally define “community”
- What drives their passion for change in their communities
- What obstacles they have faced in an effort to make a change, and how they have overcome them
“In social sciences, a community is defined as a group of individuals who share values and function within a common structure,” writes Attorney Hillary Walsh, New Frontier Immigration Law’s founder. “We are interested in how a person can enact positive change within their community to redefine a group’s present and future.”
