Attorney Mitchell Greenberg knows the value of hard work. It's one of the reasons he chose to become a workers' compensation lawyer! He wants to protect those who willfully work hard to support their families and unjustly suffer for it due to the negligence of another. Mitchell not only works hard fighting for his clients in court, but also in his international stick-fighting competitions. He took part in the international championships for the World Eskrima Kali Arnis Federation (Filipino stick-fighting) and won four gold medals.

A) What do you think it takes to make a willful worker?

B) Why is it important to persist, even when your work becomes difficult?

The Gordon A. Rich Memorial Foundation requires an annual review of each scholarship award to determine renewal eligibility. Recipients must maintain full-time enrollment status and be in good standing with their college to have the award renewed for the next academic year. GAR Scholars are expected to exhibit satisfactory citizenship in both the academic community and in the community at large. Therefore, recipients may not be on any form of academic probation or suspension. In December of each year, a renewal form is sent to each recipient. In April of each year, a letter is sent to each recipient requesting confirmation of full-time enrollment status and intent to maintain that status, a current academic transcript, and a detailed update on the courses, projects, and activities with which the recipient has been involved during the current award year.

Parkman Prize

All GAR scholars are eligible for a special award – the "Parkman Prize." This $5,000.00 award, named after one of GAR's most generous donors, is given to the scholar with the highest GPA in each academic year.

Selection Process

An independent scholarship committee - Scholarship Management Services - will be evaluating student credentials. Members of the GAR Foundation are not part of the initial selection process. From the pool of applicants, a select group of potential GAR Scholars will then be presented to the GAR Foundation. They will in turn select the GAR scholarship winners.

All materials submitted to support a scholarship application are used only in the selection process. The folder of a scholarship recipient will remain in active status during the period the scholarship is in force and will be retained for one year thereafter. All records are confidential and available for reference by Scholarship Management Services and the GAR Foundation.

Selection Procedures

Scholarship application forms and directions for completing the forms can be accessed through our website. Applications will require:

A) Applicant Data

B) Parent/Guardian Information

C) Applicant Appraisal to be completed by a high school counselor or a teacher from your junior or senior year

D) An essay response to a given prompt (500 words or less)

E) An official transcript of grades from each school attended

F) Cumulative GPA

G) Standardized test scores (SAT I or ACT)

H) Applications and all supporting materials must be submitted directly to Scholarship Management Services.

Selection Criteria for "GAR Scholars"

A) Academic record and grade point average

B) High school activities and demonstrated leadership

C) Scores on standardized test (either ACT or SAT I test scores)

D) Responses to questions on the application form

E) Demonstrated financial need

Academic Talent

GAR Scholars must have high grades and standardized test scores; not necessarily the highest, but in the top 20%. It is essential that the applicant has already demonstrated academic excellence and/or creativity in some subject area of inquiry. An example would be experience or achievements in research. GAR is looking for students who have challenged themselves with their academic programs and who demonstrate a passion for learning.

Extracurricular Activities

GAR is seeking the student with an "extra dimension" which can often be demonstrated through extracurricular activities. GAR considers both "well rounded" people who have contributed in many different ways to the lives of their schools or communities as well as those who have pushed a single endeavor to the highest level of recognized achievement. Extracurricular successes can come in virtually limitless forms. Examples include athletics, community service, media and journalism, and the visual and performing arts.

Financial Need

GAR Scholars must demonstrate financial need. GAR's mission is to help excellent students with financial need to face less educational debt on graduation. GAR scholarships will enable a student to have more time to concentrate on the academic and extracurricular opportunities that made them GAR Scholars in the first place.

Financial need will be determined by examining the information provided by each student on the application.

Overall

There will be no such thing as a "typical" GAR Scholar. GAR Scholars will all have certain similarities: exceptional talent, dynamism, passion and financial need. But as a group they will reveal a diverse mix of activities, interests and accomplishments as well as religion and ethnicity.

Divorce Stigma Scholarship
Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: February 28, 2022

It is our mission to get rid of the stigma of divorce so people can make a real decision for their family's future that does not come from a place of guilt and shame. We believe that when guilt and shame run the show, families stay stuck in dysfunctional relationships rather than make a movement towards becoming a healthier and happier family that may be under a different framework than marriage but nonetheless still a family.

Through our experience, our attorneys see first hand how divorce can actually leave families happier and lead to positive lives post-divorce. The Atlanta Divorce Law Group is proud to hold The Divorce Stigma Scholarship, for another year, to hear students share their experience with divorce and how it differed from the negative stigma that surrounds divorce today. Share your story with us and explain how a divorce experience of a close friend or family member had positive effects on those involved.

The winner of the scholarship will be chosen based on the criteria outlined below and will be awarded this $1,000 award to pursue their education.

Scholarship Eligibility

The eligibility requirements for The Divorce Stigma Scholarship are as follows:

A) Applicants must be currently enrolled or about to attend an accredited community college, undergraduate, or graduate program within the United States

B) Applicants must have a minimum current GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

The applicant must write a 750-word essay explaining how a divorce experience produced a positive outcome for those involved.

Application

A complete application for this scholarship will include:

A) A Resume

B) A current academic transcript (with clearly visible Cumulative GPA)

C) A 750-word essay describing a divorce that had a positive outcome for those involved as opposed to the negative experience that is usually associated with divorce.

This $1,000 scholarship is available to a student who has been diagnosed or whose family member, friend, or other individual they are close to has been diagnosed with epilepsy or another seizure disorder. We want to hear how your diagnosis has affected your life, whether that is having the responsibility to care for someone with epilepsy or how you've had to learn to take care of yourself.

Are there any important moments in your life that have occurred because of your diagnosis? Tell us your story.

Eligibility

C) Candidates for this scholarship should have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher and be in good overall academic standing.

Application Requirements

A) The candidate must submit a 750+ word essay response to the prompt: How has epilepsy affected your life?

Are there any important moments in your life that have occurred because of your diagnosis?

B) The candidate must submit a professional resumé that lists their experience, both professional and academic.

C) The candidate must submit an unofficial transcript from their current school. First-year college students, high school students, graduate students, or individuals who have recently transferred schools may submit an unofficial transcript from their most recent school, as well as their acceptance letter into the new university.
