Pascoe Law Firm Annual Learning Disabilities
Won’t Stop Me Scholarship

 

Sponsored by Pascoe Law Firm

The Pascoe Law Firm believes in the empowerment of  individuals with learning disabilities and their commitment to continuing their education. Education has the power to open doors for all individuals. Having a degree or certification can enable one to expand their lifetime earning potential, increase gross income, and provide one with better job opportunities.

As a young child, our Attorney John D. Pascoe was diagnosed with ADHD. Through the dedication of his mother and grandmother, father and sister, John worked very hard to over come the challenges he faced in school from his learning disabilities. Students with learning disabilities like ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) and other types of learning disabilities are often incredibly smart and creative. They often are so smart and intellectual they either get easily bored  or have difficulty trying to focus. Unfortunately, many students fail to find successful ways to overcome issues in school. To help encourage and reward students for overcoming issues in school involving learning disabilities, the Pascoe Law Firm has created a Scholarship – Learning Disabilities Won’t Stop Me.   ​
In turn, this allows a financial support to students who are continuing their higher education. Even though it can be difficult to succeed in school while having learning disabilities, we want to honor students who are overcoming their obstacles and pursuing an education. The rewards of an education far outweigh the challenges. We want to expand opportunities for students with learning disabilities who are seeking a college or Juris Doctor degree by offering two $1,000 scholarships (one awarded to an undergraduate program or community college and one to a student enrolled in an accredited law school)

​The Application Process

​To apply for a scholarship from the Pascoe Law Firm, write a 500+ word essay on the how you have worked to overcome your struggles in school and excel despite having learning disabilities. What tips and tricks or encouragement can you offer to other students that have learning disabilities? Examples may include the ability to succeed in time management skills, ability to listen carefully to others and ability to effectively manage multiple priorities. Craft your essay and explain your answer. Otherwise, feel free to have fun with your response. Creativity and thinking outside of the box will not hurt your chances.
​The Pascoe Law Firm will review applications and award 2 applicants with a $1,000 scholarship each. The scholarship may be used to cover school-related expenses, such as tuition fees, registration costs, supplies, and books.
​After we review the submissions, we will choose 5 finalists for the scholarship. Staff at the Pascoe Law Firm will select the winners.
