Scholarship for College Students

Every year, our firm grants a $1,000 scholarship to the American college student who creates the best video essay.

This year’s topic is: What is Estate Planning, and why is it important for everyone?

Our Scholarship Aims to Accomplish Three Goals:

  • Provide financial aid to a college student.
  • Encourage students to understand the importance of wills, trusts, and powers of attorney.
  • Inspire students to pursue a career in any legal field.

How to Enter:

  • Record a one- to two-minute video explaining what Estate Planning is, and why is it important for everyone. Applicants should use plain English and speak honestly.
  • Publish the video to your YouTube channel.
  • Title the video Sumner & Associates Group Scholarship Contest and include this link https://sumnerpc.com/scholarship/ in the description.
  • Share your video by posting it on our Facebook page, and then on your own Facebook page.
 
*If you are uncomfortable or unable to record a video, we still encourage you to apply! We will accept a 1000 word essay on the same topic and a picture of you in place of a video. Share this essay on our Facebook page and on your own Facebook page.

All submissions are due by August 15th of every year. The winner will be chosen and notified in August.
