Here at Paskvan & Ringstad, P.C., we are excited to announce our second annual Proud Alaskan Scholarship! We were impressed by the commitment to community and passion for service demonstrated by last year’s applicants, so we have decided to celebrate and reward another student’s hard work this year. If you are a student in Alaska who works to make their community a better place, then this scholarship is for you.
Will be enrolled in an Alaskan two-year to a five-year institution in 2017? Do you need help paying for schooling or supplies? You are not alone. College is not cheap, but we don’t want that to stop you from pursuing this irreplaceable experience.
At Paskvan & Ringstad, P.C., we have experienced first-hand the benefits of higher education. In today’s world, there is only so much the average person can accomplish with a high school education. That is why we are offering a $2,500 scholarship to help one Alaskan student go to college, law school, or another institute of higher education. We could not have afforded to attend college without the scholarships and financial aid we were lucky enough to receive, and we want to pay it forward now.
Applications are due on March 30th, 2017.
