Disabled Veteran Student Scholarship
Whitfield, Bryson & Mason
The legal team at Whitfield, Bryson & Mason LLP (WBM) is offering two scholarships for disabled veterans to help pay for tuition at any accredited four-year university. The scholarships will award $1,000 to each selected applicant.
At Whitfield, Bryson & Mason LLP, we believe very strongly that the men and women who serve in our armed forces have sacrificed greatly. Oftentimes these individuals put aside their education to serve our country, but find it difficult to readjust to civilian life and return to school. For veterans who are disabled, attending college might seem like an impossible task. The scholarships offered by WBM LLP are designed to give back to those who have served to help them achieve their dreams of obtaining an education.
