Better Your Life Scholarship
Today’s economy is deserving of support, and prospective students facing domestic violence deserve to be heard. Modern undergraduate costs are steep, and many individuals fail to accommodate for skyrocketing prices. While modern trends reflect a highly important societal shift to high quality education, many still struggle to meet climbing prices.
Domestic Violence in the United States
Domestic violence in the United States is a top concern. Brandy Austin Law Firm intends to assist those suffering from a history of domestic violence, supporting their ability to obtain education, better their lives and achieve astounding success. At Brandy Austin Law Firm, we believe every victim deserves financial assistance.
Every year, 4,774,000 women and 5,365,000 men in the United States face physical violence from an intimate partner. On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. When a loved one harms their partner, threatens them or touches them in an offensive way, domestic violence occurs. Unfortunately, many victims refrain from contacting authorities due to fear. Brandy Austin Law Firm intends to offer financial assistance to those having faced domestic violence and continue to struggle to better their lives.
Given the financial difficulties often faced by domestic violence victims, Brandy Austin Law Firm is interested in helping individuals engage and complete undergraduate and graduate-level education with the Better Your Life Financial Scholarship. A scholarship crafted to reduce tuition, the Better Your Life Financial Scholarship serves those in need to obtain a fulfilling college experience enhanced by reduced costs.
The Brandy Austin Law Firm scholarship grants victims the amount of $1,000 to be used exclusively for university school tuition. The check, payable to the recipient’s University, may reduce overall costs during undergraduate entry.
