In the last three decades, the cost to obtaining a college degree has spiraled. Indeed, tuition for in-state public, four-year institutions has increased 200 percent, and 150 percent for community colleges. Additionally, the demand for people entering the working class to have a college degree has increased exponentially, with economists predicting that nearly two-thirds of jobs in just five years will require education above high school. That is why the Law Offices of Michael Cordova is pleased to announce its annual Scholarship for 2015-2016.
The Scholarship provided by the Law Offices of Michael Cordova aims to reward a high-performing high school senior who has the determination and aspiration to succeed at an Arizona community college, or university. Moreover, the scholarship will help reduce the exceeding cost of tuition, or pay for other items not included in tuition like books. Michael Cordova—a scholarship recipient himself—knows first-hand how important a scholarship can be in providing opportunity to those who have an interest and desire to achieve academic accomplishment, to those who may otherwise not be able to pursue their academic ambitions: “For me, scholarships enabled me to attend college, and, ultimately, were a significant factor in assisting me to obtain my law degree” recounts Michael Cordova. Remembering what it was like to be awarded a scholarship, Michael Cordova “was very appreciative” of his benefactors for allowing him to pursue his dreams, and now takes “pride in being in a position to help others strive for their dreams.”
More information on the scholarship, including eligibility requirements and the application, can be found here. The scholarship comes with a May 1, 2015 deadline, and all eligible interested applicants must submit an application with required materials prior to the deadline to be considered. The winner of the 2015-2016 Scholarship by the Law Offices of Michael Cordova will be announced on June 15, 2015.
