Any student that overcomes these challenges and aspires to attend an Arizona university is deserving of our help.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 22, 2012
The Law Offices of Scott David Stewart have established the Family Matters Scholarship for Children of Divorce-- to provide financial assistance to those students that have been through the hardship of divorce.
With college costs and living expenses soaring, divorced parents face even greater financial challenges in their efforts to pay for their children’s education at any one of Arizona’s universities.
One Phoenix family law firm has stepped in to offer some much-needed financial assistance with the Family Matters Scholarship for Children of Divorce.
Currently, the scholarship is offered at Arizona State University, but will be available to students all over the State of Arizona by the fall semester, 2012.
The 2012 Family Matters Scholarship for Children of Divorce is available through to college freshmen with a minimum 3.0 GPA and to incoming high school students with a minimum 3.3 GPA (A = 4.0). Scholarship recipients must be enrolled full-time, with at least 12 semester credit hours.
Essays written by scholarship applicants will be judged by an independent panel.
As children touched by divorce, student applicants will write about the impact that divorce has had on their lives and on their families, and how they overcame challenges during their most difficult times.
The scholarship’s founder, Arizona family law attorney Scott David Stewart, is no stranger to the difficulties that divorce foists on the children. “In all child custody cases, the parties’ emotions run very high. The children are pulled into this very difficult situation. They don’t understand why their parents won’t stay together, and they often feel responsible for their parents break-up,” said Stewart.
“Any student that overcomes these challenges and aspires to attend an Arizona university is deserving of our help.”
Scholarship winners will receive $500 toward their Fall or Spring semester tuition, books, meal plans, or housing. Winners will also see their essays published on the official website of the Law Offices of Scott David Stewart, pllc, the Phoenix area family law firm that established this unique scholarship.
The Family Matters scholarship will be offered every semester to newly qualified students first, but past scholarship winners with continuing financial needs may reapply.
