Annual Leukemia Scholarships

Congratulations to our winners Ashleigh & Andrew

The Law Office of David P. Shapiro has announced that will be offering two (2) scholarships annually, each one in the amount of $1,000, for people who have been diagnosed with leukemia.  These are educational scholarships, and will be awarded in the form of tuition paid to an educational institution selected by the winner.Leukemia is cancer of the blood.  Those who are affected by the condition face emotional, physical, and financial challenges.  In the case of students, the burden of being diagnosed with leukemia can lead to the abandonment of a person’s educational goals.  We, at The Law Office of David P. Shapiro, are committed to doing our part to encourage those with leukemia to further their schooling and realize their educational objectives.

Scholarship Description

The scholarship program being offered by the Law Office of David P. Shapiro consists of two separate annual scholarships.  The amount of each scholarship is $1,000.  They must be used for tuition to further the applicant’s trade school, secondary, college, or community college education.  You do not have to be currently attending school or college in order to submit an application for a scholarship.  Within a year from the date the scholarship is awarded, you must provide us with a tuition invoice issued by the educational institution, and a check in the amount of $1,000 will then be sent to the institution.
