Introducing the 2022 college scholarship contest for eligible undergraduate students from New Philadelphia, Ohio Attorneys

We believe that the legal profession is there to help and assist those in need but also feel that being active participants in our community is a must. With offices all over the state of Ohio, we have been able to help many individuals and families as they navigate the complexities of the legal system. Now, we want to hear from you and hear about the different and creative ways that you are able to give back to your community. 

We are proud to present The McCleery Law Firm Community Give-Back Initiative – 2022 College Scholarship Contest for qualifying 2022 undergraduate students. 

Our firm will award a $1,000 scholarship to one student who writes about their involvement in their community.

While this may not be a full ride scholarship, we believe small college grants and scholarships like these are valuable. They afford an opportunity for financial assistance and a start to a resume filled with accolades. When calculating the cost of college, don’t underestimate the power of a helping hand. For more scholarship opportunities please explore the US Department of Labor’s free scholarship search tool.

**The deadline for this scholarship submission is December 31, 2022. If you do not submit your essay by this date, you will not be eligible for the scholarship. No late submissions will be accepted.
