2016 CarterCares Scholarship Contest

The Law Offices of Carter Mario Law Firm' is excited to announce that the 11thAnnual CarterCares Scholarship Contest is officially underway. This year's scholarship is a combined effort, to financially assist graduating seniors who are going on to college and to encourage students to give back to their communities.

Carter Mario Law Firm believes in the importance of reaching out and making a difference in the communities in which we serve. For this year's scholarship, each applicant will be asked to prepare a presentation featuring a charity or organization they are passionate about, explaining their choice and their past and current involvement. A panel of judges at the firm will review the presentations, (which could include but are not limited to: videos, essays, songs, or billboard designs) and select this year's winners.

This year, the firm is offering (5) $2,000 scholarships to Connecticut high school seniors who will be attending college in the fall of 2016. Additionally, each of the 5 winners will have their charity or organization featured as one of our "Charities of the Month" for 2016 in an effort to help raise awareness.

Since the program's inception in 2006, Carter Mario Law Firm has awarded over $115,000 in scholarship money.

Connecticut high school seniors interested in applying can do so by visiting our Scholarship Page and downloading the application, or by visiting their school's guidance department. All entries must be postmarked by March 25, 2016.
