Margolis Bloom & D’Agostino is introducing its first annual scholarship to a second- or third-year attending a law school in Massachusetts who is interested in serving BIPOC communities in the field of estate planning. Such interest may be demonstrated by having taken courses in estate planning, trusts and estates, estate taxation, elder law or special needs planning, or having worked at a law firm that concentrates in these fields.
The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage law students from backgrounds under-represented in the field to consider estate planning. Failure to engage in estate planning can undermine the creation of generational wealth.
The scholarship will be in the amount of $2,500 and the deadline for applications is May 31st. Current first- and second-year law students may apply by sending their resume and an email to firstname.lastname@example.org describing their interest in estate planning and familiarity with the field, whether through classes, work, or family experiences.
