New scholarships are just another opportunity where students can earn extra money towards their education. Although it may just seem as if it is only one extra scholarship, but it could also mean an extra couple of thousands of dollars in their pocket. Ronald D. Weiss College Scholarship Contest is a perfect example of that. Being a Long Island Attorney, Ronald Weiss would like to announce a new scholarship contest to students pursuing a college degree. It is a new scholarship that is giving students a chance to earn an extra $2,500 towards their college education. Ronald D. Weiss, P.C. is a law firm that deals with bankruptcy, foreclosures, and other consumer law protections to help businesses and individuals steer clear of debt. Applicants need to be enrolled in a college or a university or planning to enroll for the upcoming year to apply. Students are required to be in a good academic standing with their current school. Students under 18 will need to get their parent’s approval. In order to apply for this scholarship, students are asked to submit their original essay of 500 to 1,000 words by the April 17th deadline. A winner will get chosen by the end of the month and will receive the funds. This law firm knows how hard it can be to get a college education and how hard it can be to finance it, so they decided to give students a chance to take a load off their shoulders since it is what every college student worries about.
