At Jeffrey Coller, Knoxville Criminal Defense Attorney, they understand the diﬃculties that many students face as they pursue a college education. As young people leave their parents’ homes, adjust to new situations, become involved in activities on college campuses, earn income through part-time employment, and attend classes, they may struggle to keep their grades up.
The eﬀorts of those who have encountered and overcome these types of challenges should be recognized. Through their Rising Stars Scholarship, they seek to do just that.
Their scholarship program provides ﬁnancial assistance to students who have been able to signiﬁcantly improve their grade point averages since beginning their college education.
Each semester, they award a $1,000 scholarship to a student who can demonstrate that their GPA has increased by at least one point from semester to semester or year to year.
To apply for the Rising Stars Scholarship, you must submit an essay of less than 1,000 words on the following topic:
What steps did you take to increase your grade point average? Describe the challenges you faced and the eﬀorts you made to improve your academic performance. What lessions did you learn during this time, and how do you expet to use the skills you have gained in your future career?
Your application must also include a copy of your academic transcript demonstrating that your GPA has increased.
