At Larry & Sons, we believe in the importance of a post-secondary education for America’s youth. To help students achieve a college education, we are proud to offer an essay scholarship contest. The winner of this contest will win a one-time $1000 scholarship.
Education for the Future
A post-secondary education helps students learn the skills they need to succeed in future roles at leaders, mentors and productive members of society. Larry & Sons has established a scholarship fund to help students pursue their dreams for a college education. This scholarship will be made available on a yearly basis and is open to students pursuing further education in any field of study, including humanities, STEM programs, etc.
We recognize the importance of all fields of study and how they all product people with the unique skills to benefit society in numerous ways. By offering this scholarship opportunity to all areas of study, we’re able to reinforce that idea.
This scholarship is intended to help ease some of the financial burdens many students experience when pursuing a higher education, and we hope that it will help more students achieve their career dreams.
