WATTEL & YORK SCHOLARSHIP AWARD

 

Arizona personal injury firm Wattel & York is pleased to announce an annual scholarship opportunity to benefit single mothers who wish to attain a college or graduate degree. Higher education in this country is expensive and competitive, and yet such challenges pale in comparison to those faced by single mothers who must go the extra mile to raise the funds, raise their children, and rise to the challenge of academic competition all at the same time.

To that end, we have created the Wattel & York Annual Scholarship Award to provide assistance. Please read on for eligibility requirements.
