Davis Law Group’s Scholar Athlete Program™ is an annual scholarship program that was initially launched to recognize exceptional student athletes who perform well in the classroom as well as on the field. Anyone is eligible to nominate a scholar; parents, coaches, peers, teammates, teacher or school administrators.
How The Scholar Athlete Program Works:
From January 2019 through May 2019, two high school seniors in Washington state will be chosen monthly as the Davis Law Group Scholar Athlete of the Month and given a $100 scholarship to acknowledge their academic and athletic commitment.
A total of ten (10) monthly scholarship recipients will be selected. After all ten (10) recipients are announced, scholars have the choice to enter the Sportsmanship Essay Contest for a chance to win an additional scholarship award. The Grand Prize Winner will receive an additional $1000 scholarship award.
Davis Law Group commends all student athletes for their exceptional dedication and hard work. If you have further questions regarding this program, feel free to contact our office.
