2019 El Dabe Ritter Scholarship

At El Dabe Law, we passionately believe in and support the importance of a proper education. Without an education, many doors will remain closed. Going to school is an uphill battle – and if you don’t have the proper aid in place – you may end up never going to school. We make this easier for you, by offering our $1500 scholarship. This scholarship is our way of providing support to those who want a higher education.

In order to apply for this scholarship, we request you write a 500+ word essay on why having a higher education is important. We’d like to learn more about you as a student, and how you’ve persevered and fought to get the education you want. Tell us about one challenge, and how it has prepared you for the challenges you face as a student.
