$2,500 Scholarship for Continuing Education

The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess $2,500 Scholarship

At The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess, our Louisiana personal injury attorneys appreciate the importance of an education, and it is our mission to help those in need. We understand how expensive school can be. The College Board reports an average school year costs $24,610 for in-state students attending a public university and can double for out-of-state students!

Making ends meet can be a struggle for students and their families, so in hopes to make things a little easier, we are happy to offer a $2,500 yearly scholarship. This opportunity is available to current students as well as individuals who wish to attend college or graduate school in the coming semester in any major, at any school in the United States.
