Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough Scholarship for Military Veterans
In recognition of the bravery and dedication of our troops, the law offices of Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough are proud to create our first-ever Scholarship for Military Veterans. We hope that this $1,000 scholarship will help one deserving veteran succeed in school and their career.
The work performed by the members of our armed forces is invaluable. Service members not only risk their lives to defend democracy and liberty, they are held to incredibly high standards of discipline, knowledge and ethics. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough we believe strongly in the mission of our armed forces and in the men and women who carry that mission out.
We also believe that veterans deserve to follow the career of their dreams. A veteran of the US military brings a valuable perspective to the workforce, drawing on the same values they were taught in the military and using those values to improve the world around them. We want as many veterans as possible to earn a degree and embark upon a fulfilling career. Our hope for this scholarship is that it will help one veteran do exactly that.
We urge all eligible veterans to apply. Applications will be reviewed with an eye to the content of the essay as well as academic merit. We wish all candidates luck and look forward to bestowing the scholarship.
