At the Terry Law Firm, attorney David Terry and the rest of the team are focused on pursuing justice for those who have been abused or neglected by the nursing home industry and helping others who have been seriously injured through the negligent conduct of others. While David works hard in the courtroom, he works just as hard outside of it, especially on causes that are close to his heart. One of those causes is the world’s water crisis. David is committed to taking action to ensure that people all over the world have access to safe and clean water sources, even traveling to Honduras and El Salvador to help provide clean water to those who previously lacked access to safe, clean water.
This is why the Terry Law Firm is happy to announce the Clean Water Crisis Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to bring awareness to the fact that billions of people lack access to clean water both domestically and around the world. Water is the most basic human resource, yet millions of people spend hours each day making onerous treks just to find clean water. We want to hear students’ ideas and opinions on what can be done to ensure that everyone has easy access to clean and safe water. One scholarship winner will be selected to receive this $1,000 award to help them pay for their college education.
In order to be considered eligible for The Clean Water Crisis Scholarship, students must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or law program within the United States. High school seniors who will be enrolled in college before the application deadline are also eligible to apply. All applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
A complete scholarship application must include the following:
- A current academic transcript, official or unofficial
- An updated resume
- In a 750-word personal essay, discuss any ongoing water crisis, whether domestic or around the world, and the effect that a lack of access to/scarcity of clean water sources has on quality of life. What are some initiatives that we can take to address this issue?
Applications must be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “[Applicant Name] – Clean Water Crisis Scholarship.”
All scholarship materials must be submitted by November 30, 2019.
