2024 For the Win Scholarship

scholarshipAt Scott Vicknair LLC, we always “Fight for the Win.” This is a core value of our law firm, as we fight until the end with every resource we have to win for our clients. We believe this mentality motivates our team to constantly pay attention to the finer details of every case, hire the best, and focus on systems and processes that enable us to be in the strongest position to win for our clients.

Fighting for the Win is not always easy. Challenges and adversity can often present seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Maintaining our determination when the odds are heavily against us is particularly tough. However, these difficult moments also offer opportunities for personal growth and learning from mistakes and can shape our character in profound ways. In 750-1000 words, we ask students to share with us a story where, against adversity, you fought for the win. What do you fight for? What did you learn from pushing against the odds? This scholarship ends on July 31st 2024, and the winner of this scholarship will receive an award of $1000.
