Wilshire Law Firm Student Scholar App

A student that wants to attend college should not have that goal compromised because of financial considerations. For Wilshire Law Firm’s founding president Bobby Saadian, a higher education should be a right, not a privilege. That’s especially true when the student in question has a history of academic excellence.

With that in mind, Wilshire Law Firm is proud to sponsor the Student Scholar Award. This award has been established to recognize a high school student who has achieved academic excellence while also contributing to their community in a meaningful way.

The winner will receive a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to use towards their college education and a possible springboard to a career in law. If you believe that you are that Student Scholar, please let Wilshire Law Firm know by completing the application and submitting your essay for consideration.
