Scholarship Opportunity for Former Foster Youth
Akerman LLP and National CASA are excited to announce the application process is now open for the fourth annual Akerman Academic Excellence Scholarship Award.
As part of Akerman’s $1 million pledge to National CASA, an endowment fund was created to support the Akerman Academic Excellence Scholarship. This program is designed to help young adults who have spent time in foster care pursue a post-secondary education through an accredited institution of higher learning such as a university, career college, or technical school.
A scholarship for $2,500 will be awarded to an outstanding former foster youth who has demonstrated a commitment to academic achievement. Additional scholarship funds will be awarded at the discretion of the Scholarship Selection Committee. The deadline for submissions is March 8.
