July 31st Deadline: A Scholarship for Creative High School & College Students

Each year, the Lamber-Goodnow Injury Law Team awards two scholarships to innovative and highly creative high school and college students. They seek essay submissions from students who are creative thinkers and problem solvers. Whether you are a star in your local community, an aspiring leader, a tech whiz, an engineer or a creative writer, they want to hear from you.

Creative thought, motivation and execution are important to Lamber-Goodnow. They believe that innovation is just as important in the legal process as it is in the rest of life. To make progress and improve upon our circumstances and surroundings, we must be willing to take risks that can influence and drive positive change. Lamber-Goodnow wants to support students who buck the trend, think outside of the box and deliver on this concept in everyday life and in school.

Two $1,000 Scholarship Awards
