The Ankin Law Office Annual Scholarship for Military Veterans recognizes the sacrifice our veterans and their families have made for our country. Part of that sacrifice includes delaying education and training to serve our country. We hope this $1,000 scholarship will help the award recipient transition to a civilian career.
The funds will be used for tuition only and be paid directly to the award recipient’s educational institution. A committee will select the winner based on the essay submitted on the topic below.
The scholarship is open to military veterans of the United States Armed Forces and to their family members (parents, children, and grandchildren) who will be enrolled in an accredited community college, college, university, trade, or vocational school in the fall of 2018.

The winner must provide proof of military service or if a family member, proof of the relationship to the veteran and proof of military service. If not active, the military member must have been discharged honorably.
