Are you a Hispanic student who will be enrolled in a two-year to five-year institution in Colorado in 2016? Do you need help paying for schooling or supplies? You are not alone. College is not cheap, but we don’t want that to stop you from pursuing this irreplaceable experience.
At the Law Office of Andres R. Guevara, we have experienced first-hand the benefits of higher education. In today’s world, there is only so much the average person can accomplish with a high school education. That is why we are offering a $1,000 scholarship to help one Hispanic Colorado student go to college, law school, or other institute of higher education. We could not have afforded to attend college without the scholarships and financial aid we were lucky enough to receive, and we want to pay it forward now.
So, what do you have to do?
We want to know your idea of “justice.” As criminal defense attorneys, we dedicate our lives to defending those who society has labeled as “criminals.” We hold to the belief that you are innocent until proven guilty, and we believe that everyone—regardless of ethnic background or economic status, and no matter whether they actually committed the crime or not—has the right to a defense. We spend our days making sure that those who have simply made a mistake are heard—that they have someone on their side.
This is what we call “criminal justice”—bringing justice to those who society typically labels as unworthy. This is our way of bringing social justice to the world. But this is not the only type of justice that this world needs.
To apply for this scholarship, we are asking you to answer the following prompt: What is justice to you? What is one major injustice you see in the world today? And, finally, how can you bring justice to that particular injustice?
If you are a Hispanic high school or college student and are enrolled in a two–five year institution in Colorado in 2016, apply today for the $1,000 Law Office of Andres R. Guevara Hispanics in Colorado Scholarship.
