At the law firm of Simon Bennett Robbins Oppenheim & Taft, we believe there is no better way to enrich young minds than by providing educational opportunities.
And a multitude of research studies have shown time and again that the most prevelant hurdle for those seeking a college degree is a lack of funding.
Just last year, the national center for education statistics released a report indicating that students enrolling in and completing undergraduate degrees
in the United States has become stagnant.
Since the mid-1980s, the Simon Bennett Robbins Oppenheim & Taft scholarship fund has worked to reverse that trend, offering more than $6 million in college scholarships for young men and women of all nationalities, backgrounds, and races. Our scholarships are largely merit-based and are awarded annually to students who meet or exceed the eligibility criteria set forth below.
We make our selections every semester (once in the spring and once in the fall), based on our in-house verification process that has been implemented to ensure academic expectations have been reached, and most importantly, that there is financial need.
