In the past four years, we have given out one, four, two and three $5,000 scholarships. We will award at least three scholarships this year!
The scholarships will be awarded to help the students with any college expense they may have. In fact, we just cut the check to the students to use as they see fit. HOWEVER, this year we will be doing something different. In the past, we have named finalists and then selected the scholarship winners. This year, 8 finalists will be selected and each will receive $1,000. From this group of finalists, we will pick three winners who will get an additional $4,000 for a total payout for the three winning finalists of $5,000 each.
To be considered for the scholarship, all you have to do is:
1) Like and Share our Facebook page with your friends and family - Monsour Facebook Page
2) Invite 10 people (or more) to like the Monsour Law Firm Facebook page
3) Fill out the form below
4) Get your family and friends to post to our Facebook page the reasons why you deserve to receive the scholarship. We will read everything that anyone posts (please remember to be nice)
5) We understand that some people feel uncomfortable speaking about their own successes and achievements. Accordingly, we will gladly read anything nice that anyone has to say about you.
We will evaluate all applicants based on a "whole person" approach. By that, we mean that while academics certainly are important, we understand there is more to an individual than GPA and ACT scores. Each student will be evaluated, not only on their academics, but also on their personal achievements. Tell us about your journey to college. If there is something special you have done or significant obstacle you have had to overcome let us know that as well. This scholarship is open to all students who are currently a Senior in East Texas area schools. We will narrow the list to our finalists on April 13th, 2020, at 5:00 pm and start interviews, however we will be evaluating applications as they are received. Don't wait until the last minute, submit yours now. This year we will be giving away at least 3 $5,000 scholarships. In 2017, we said two scholarships and ended up giving away four, so you never know what will happen this year. Good luck!!
