The Take a Stand Scholarship

As ex-firefighters and police officers, the attorneys at Saint & Watzke seek to inspire people to hold fast to their beliefs and morals. The firm values helping those in need and respecting different opinions. Proper legal representation starts with strong morals and defined goals as well as the ability to articulate those goals to a client and a court of law. That’s why we launched the The Take a Stand Scholarship.

This scholarship program is intended to support those who stand up for their beliefs. To apply, submit a 1,000-word essay outlining one of your core principles or beliefs and a time those beliefs were challenged and you had to stand up for them. The applicant with the most compelling essay will receive a $1,000 scholarship to further their educational goals.
