2020 FOR THE PEOPLE SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS

Congratulations to our three winners this year!
1st Place: Skylar Harris

3rd Place: Muhammad Ali
Thank you to all those who applied. We will begin accepting new applicants in the winter of 2021!

M&M Scholarship

For more than 30 years, Morgan & Morgan attorneys have joined us to work “For The People,” and it’s been a commitment that has long extended beyond the courtroom. Our core philosophy is that we don’t shy away from a challenge. We do what’s necessary, whether that means winning large jury verdicts against big corporations and insurance companies, fighting unscrupulous employers, or advocating for civil rights, among other things.

We want to inspire young lawyers to approach their careers with the same mindset. Applicants will be evaluated primarily on the quality of their answers, but also on their creativity.

We get so many moving entries every year, and while we can only pick three winners, we want to lift up as many voices as possible this year. In submitting your essay and photos, you may get the chance to be featured on our social channels (with your permission), even if you're not selected as a recipient of the scholarship. We hope to highlight as many of you and your inspiring words as we can.

*If you are more on the shy or private side, don’t worry. By clicking “no” on the form for having your essay and photo shared, it does NOT disqualify you from being selected as a winner."
