Keches Law Group’s injury lawyers are proud to announce the fourth annual scholarship award program. This year we will award two $1,500 scholarships: one to a candidate pursuing an undergraduate or graduate college degree and one to a candidate entering trade school. We strongly believe a good education is a factor of future success and know financial hurdles prevent many from pursuing their dreams.
Scholarship Essay Prompt
