Richard West Law Office Annual Student Loan Scholarship

Richard West is the founder and lead bankruptcy attorney at the Richard West Law Office. He has been practicing law for nearly 30 years. He understands the need for financial assistance in the pursuit of higher education and, therefore, has a desire to serve and help those who are financing their education through loans and/or scholarship.

In this spirit, the Richard West Law Office will chose qualified candidates to receive $500 scholarships to help support the costs of tuition and books each year. Mr. West hopes that these scholarships will reward the efforts of motivated members of the community by helping take some of the financial pressure of education off their shoulders as they work towards advancing their goals.

To be considered for the scholarship, candidates must have a minimum 3.3 GPA, be a US citizen, enrolled in an accredited college and financing their education through loans and/or scholarships.
