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 academic year of 2018-2019. Applicants should submit a 500-word essay answering the following question to the email address provided below:

Police brutality is a subject that tops the headlines quite often. What do you think police officers and law enforcement can do/what sort of tool or invention can you think of, which would keep police officers safe without lessening their ability to do their jobs, while also not infringing on citizens rights?

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

Application procedure

In order to apply, applicants should submit their essay in word format to zeigerfirmscholarship@gmail.com by 11/25/18 9 AM EST. In addition, applicants must include the following information in the body of the email to which their essay is attached:

  • Their full name and phone number
  • The name of the institution you are planning to attend or the one you are attending
  • Contact information for their parent(s) or legal guardian, if an applicant is under the age of 18

The Fall 2018 winner will be announced on or around 12/15/2018. Please note the winner’s scholarship check will be issued to the student’s college/university of choice.

By submitting your essay, you are giving permission for the Zeiger Firm to use name or essay on our website, newsletter, or other social media channels, if selected as the winner. Only one winner will be selected. In the event that the winner fails to respond to the notification within 7 business days, the winner’s prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected. The prize will be issued in the name of an accredited college or university of a winner’s choice and can be used towards any fees and/or expenses associated with the winner’s education.
