    The Education Equality Scholarship

    Today’s economy, educational policy changes, and ever-shifting personal circumstances place undergraduate students under great strain. In the last decade, undergraduate costs have skyrocketed. Parian Lawyers believes that all students should have equal access to high-quality educational institutions.

    In 2019, students graduating with a bachelor’s degree owe debts around $32,731, according to Forbes. Many students struggle to maintain existing personal financial obligations while investing in their future. The financial earnings gap between those who attended college and those who didn’t continue to widen, reducing chances of upward mobility for those who did not receive a degree, according to the New York Times.

    Identifying the Gap

    Parian Lawyers applauds those seeking a higher education. Education brightens the future of America. However, in higher education, a paradigm called “The Gap” exists.

    If a student, for example, receives a Pell Grant and other financial aid, they still may struggle to pay the balance due to attend college or university classes. Many times this is due to circumstances beyond the student’s control such as growing up in an economically disadvantaged household.

    Students are often unable to afford to continue their education.

    Unfortunately, many students simply give up on their dreams of a college education.

    We simply cannot let this happen.

    The Education Equality Scholarship

    For this reason, Parian Lawyers offers a needs-based financial aid response to aid gap funding specifically.

    We are offering $1,000.00 to a student currently enrolled in a community college, junior college, undergraduate, or graduate program.
