Second Chance Scholarship
Herman Law, P.A.Extensive research and studies confirm what we see firsthand at Herman Law, P.A., that a college education reduces recidivism, increases earning potential and is an integral part of criminal justice reform and offender re-entry programs. Reducing recidivism makes our communities safer, helps reintegrate people who have paid their debt to society and make them contributing members, and lowers our taxpayer burden by reducing the astronomical costs of incarceration. Although federal student loans and grants help millions of students each year, those with a criminal record, such as a drug conviction, may not be eligible to receive financial aid. In response, we are taking action and proudly introduce the inaugural Herman Law, P.A. Second Chance Scholarship for a convicted felon or a child of convicted felon. Recently, as many of our friends and family celebrated and attended graduation ceremonies and helped our grads transition to college life, we were reminded of the many people who are not that fortunate. We thoughts of some of our clients and their families, who may be precluded or discouraged from considering a college education. So we set out to do something and encourage others to join us. We are excited to offer this college scholarship and give a deserving student a second chance! You will need to submit proof of felony conviction of yourself or your parent. Sign Up to Start Applying
