Scholarship

Atticus Family Law, S. C. Annual Scholarship

Atticus Family Law, S. C. strongly believes that people in family law transitions, such as divorces and custody cases, need passionate and invested professionals to call upon who can help make their futures great. Going beyond the short-term family law needs, this includes their long-term needs for therapists, financial planners, accountants, lenders, real estate agents, social workers and others. We placed great value in our own education when we made sacrifices on our paths to college and beyond. We want to help others who intend to enter fields needed by those people and their families who go through family law transitions.

This scholarship opportunity will be awarded based on merit to two students, annually. The students will be chosen from the two areas where Atticus Family Law, S. C. has offices – the Twin Cities and Duluth. One student will be chosen from the Twin Cities region, being the communities in and near Ramsey, Hennepin, Washington, Anoka, Sherburne, Carver, Scott and Dakota counties. The other student will be from Northeastern MN, being Duluth and the Iron Range as well as the other communities in and near Saint Louis, Lake, and Carlton counties.
