Lemberg Law “Entrepreneurial Spirit” $1,250 Law School Scholarship
The most successful businesspeople in the history of the United States have all had one key attribute in common – an unshakeable entrepreneurial spirit. Whether that manifests itself in the founding of a business empire, or the creation of a never-before-seen invention, striking it out alone can be a positive – even life changing – experience.
Sergei Lemberg, Lemberg Law’s managing attorney, knows this only too well. He founded Lemberg Law over a decade ago after having spent many years working in large law firms, managing a huge caseload and a busy schedule. It was only after taking the plunge and starting his own business that Sergei Lemberg began to understand just how rewarding it can be to embrace your inner entrepreneur. It’s for this reason that he is committed to encouraging young people to follow in his footsteps.
Lemberg Law is offering a $1,250 scholarship to a law student who fosters an entrepreneurial spirit of their own.
Applications for the Lemberg Law Entrepreneurial Spirit Scholarship are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on January 15, 2019.
Who are we looking for?
- Students who are immigrants to the U.S., AND
- Students who are U.S. citizens, DACA recipients, or legal permanent residents, AND
- An undergraduate student (Class of 2019) who plans to enroll in a J.D., LL.M, or S.J.D. program in the U.S. during the 2019-2020 school year, OR
- A current graduate student who will be enrolled full-time in a J.D., LL.M, or S.J.D. program in the U.S. during the 2019-2020 school year
If this sounds like you, you should apply.
What do we need from you?
Not much! We’ll need a few bits of information, and to qualify for consideration for the scholarship you’ll need to submit an example of a Facebook-style ad (along with a caption) aimed at engaging the public on the subject of either lemon law, debt collection harassment, or overtime pay.
Once the entries are in, we will select the best 10 to move forward into the final, where each entrant will submit a further 2 Facebook-style ads on the above subjects from which the winner will be picked.
What happens after the January 15 deadline?
Members of the Lemberg Law team will review all of the submissions. We’ll select the 10 best entries to progress to the final based on originality, creativity and quality of the submitted ad. Finalists will be notified by January 30, 2019.
Entrants will then have a further three weeks to submit their entries for the final (due February 20, 2019), which will consist of 2 further Facebook-style ads based on the original topics. The winner of the final will be announced by March 6, 2019. After we receive the winner’s proof of enrollment at their college or university, we’ll send a check (payable to the college/university) to be used towards tuition and fees.
