Bachus & Schanker, LLC Scholarship

We understand the dedication and motivation necessary to obtain a degree in today's academic environment, and want to help ease the burden for students who have the desire to advance their career. Founding Partner, Darin Schanker

Understanding the importance of a quality education, Bachus & Schanker, LLC will begin awarding two $2000 scholarships to help full-time college students across the U.S. focus on their intellectual development and career goals.

Starting August 1, the Denver-based law firm will begin accepting 800-word essay submissions from interested students. Up to two recipients will receive $2,000 scholarships that will be given in August and again in January 2015 to help offset tuition fees for the upcoming semesters.

To qualify for the August scholarship, each student must write an essay about his or her opinion(s) on the importance and efficacy of the Seventh Amendment. They must think critically about the right to trial by a jury and how the amendment affects their lives. Respondents should consider the entirety of the amendment, rather than the well-known nutshell explanation of the right to trial by jury.

Students also must meet the following criteria:

  •     Be enrolled full-time in a four-year U.S. university
  •     Maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average or higher
  •     Submit their 800-word essay by August 15, 2014 for the fall semester and Nov. 30, 2014 for the spring 2015 semester as a .doc or .pdf attachment to

Bachus & Schanker has a strong history of philanthropic giving. The desire to give back led to the creation of the Bachus & Schanker Cares Foundation in 2009, which has donated about $360,000 and enabled employees to volunteer an estimated 2,000 hours to worthy organizations to date.
