2021 Overcoming Obstacles Scholarship
O'Connor Family Law is a divorce and family law firm based in Westborough, Massachusetts with a South Shore office as well. As a family law attorney and divorcee, Heather O’Connor understands the challenges that one faces after a serious life-changing event, like divorce, and is committed to helping her clients feel supported both legally and emotionally through such a trying time.
Following this mission, the team at O’Connor Family Law are pleased to announce the Overcoming Obstacles Scholarship. We understand that obstacles can often get in the way of pursuing one’s dreams, which is why we would like to give back to an individual who has been able to overcome a serious obstacle in his or her life and used it as an opportunity to learn and grow. This can be any obstacle that greatly impacted your life. For example, going through a messy divorce or witnessing one as a child, struggling financially, or being in a serious accident, etc. Whatever the obstacle may have been, we are proud of you for overcoming such a challenge. We would like to recognize an individual for their strength and perseverance with a $1,000.00 scholarship to put towards pursuing their educational goals.
The scholarship will award $1,000.00 to a student who best describes a significant event or challenge they have faced, explains how they overcame that challenge, the impact it had on them, and how they have or will use what they learned throughout the process to help others.
The Overcoming Obstacles Scholarship is open to any current high school senior, college student or graduate student enrolled in an accredited community college, undergraduate, or graduate program within the United States.
Candidates for this scholarship should have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher and be in good overall academic standing.
The recipient of the Overcoming Obstacles Scholarship will be chosen during the month following the scholarship deadline.
