Bogin, Munns & Munns law firm is pleased to announce it is accepting applications for the law firm’s annual Focus on the Family Scholarship. The winner of this year’s scholarship will receive $2,500 to apply toward their higher education.
The deadline for entries is June 15, 2021.
About the Focus on the Family Scholarship
As lawyers that help victims of personal injury, the legal team at Bogin, Munns & Munns has witnessed their fair share of injustice and unfairness in life. Whether an individual is harmed in a car accident or harmed in a legal injustice, they have seen firsthand that the injured does not suffer alone. Their families suffer, too.
“But we have also noticed that the family bond does something else in such times of hardship,” said Ryan Munns, Partner at Bogin, Munns & Munns. “We’ve seen that strong, supportive families play an amazing role in the victim’s recovery—both emotional and physical.
“We have seen that, often, individuals with great family support are able to bridge the gap and successfully move past unfairness or injustice easier than those individuals without that support. This is what prompted us to create the Focus on the Family Scholarship.”
The law firm is eager to hear from students who have been able to make an impact on their communities with or because of the support of their family. They recognize that what makes a family can be defined as members of a group you are born into or by chosen members as well.
