Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) December 31, 2013
In the spirit of investing in the next generation of professionals, the Siegfried & Jensen law firm at http://www.siegfriedandjensen.com is proud announce their new Palmer Fred (Bud) Siegfried Scholarship, a program offering a $1,000 scholarship to one student per year in the United States.
With the intention of helping students pursuing a professional degree to cover their costs of tuition, the Bud Siegfried Scholarship aims to allow these students more time to study, rather than work, so that they can be more focused and thus achieve their degree in a timelier manner.
It is this emphasis on academic excellence that was the genesis of the firm’s new scholarship program. Find out more at http://www.siegfriedandjensen.com/scholarships
“Siegfried & Jensen has believed in and supported academic excellence since it’s beginning in the 1990s,” says a spokesman for the company. “Having spent many years of our own lives in college and at universities, we understand the important role that higher education plays in our communities, economy and families. That is why we are pleased to announce the Bud Siegfried Scholarship.”
For applicants to be considered for this coveted scholarship, they must meet a series of requirements. In addition to being currently enrolled in a college or university in the United States, applicants must write two essays – a 500 to 700-word essay about how an injury attorney can make a difference when it comes to automobile accidents, medical malpractice or product liability and, secondly, a 300 to 400-word essay about an act of service the student has performed in the last three weeks that has made a difference in their life. As a caveat, students cannot have received any payment, be it money, food, or otherwise, for this noted act of service.
Siegfried & Jensen is a Utah-based law firm that was established to help individuals and families work with difficult insurance companies that refuse to pay insurance claims following traumatic accidents and, with this newly launched Bud Siegfried Scholarship program, they are pleased to again be helping individuals and families, this time, in the important arena of education.
