Helping college students meet their financial needs

The rising cost of obtaining a college education has made it increasingly difficult for many students and families to realize their dreams of earning a college degree. As an attorney, Brian Zeiger understands the value of education as well as the financial strain that being a student can often entail. In an effort to help students meet their financial needs, The Zeiger Firm is pleased to offer a $1,000 scholarship to each winner of the biannual Brian Zeiger college scholarship essay contest. Details regarding the contest and application procedures are detailed below.

The essay contest

In order to participate in the contest, prospective applicants must be currently enrolled in an accredited United States college or university or planning to attend one in the fall 2016 semester. Applicants should submit a 500-word essay answering the following question to the email address provided below:

My good friend and professional cyclist David H. Sylvester has announced a new Hugs & High Fives Tour. This summer Dave will travel, on his bicycle, from San Bernardino, California to Philadelphia, PA. He will be stopping at many cities along the way. 

The purpose of Dave’s tour is to motivate people to see the good in our society and to look for the possibilities in their own lives. Dave believes this is possible through the exchange of stories, talking about society, and Hugs & High Fives. One of David’s frequent topics is police brutality in our society and how everyone in our society must come together for peace to balance our civil rights. 

 

If you can make it to one of Dave’s city, that would be great—he has plenty of hugs and high fives. Either way, please write an essay on the effect of police brutality on our society and suggestions for reducing social unrest in our society related to police actions.

Responses will be judged on the following criteria:

  • The quality of the writing
  • Originality
  • The thoughtfulness of the response
  • The applicant’s demonstrated potential for success in a field of study related to law

I’m a Finalist – Now What?

Now it’s your turn to share your hard work! The finalists will be responsible for promoting their entries within their social media network – get your friends, family, and followers to like your essay for the best chance to win! The winner will be determined by the amount of social media “buzz” the winning essays generate on Facebook. The person with the most Facebook “Likes” will win!
