Steinger, Iscoe & Greene Latin Heritage Law Student Scholarship

Steinger, Iscoe & Greene are proud to serve the people of Florida and California and to give back to our community. Since 1997 we have worked to represent those injured by the carelessness and negligence of others and to help victims and their families get back on their feet. Now we are pleased to present a $1,000 scholarship to one student of Hispanic descent seeking to obtain a law degree.

We believe that young Latino and Latina leaders are capable of innovation and creative new approaches to law, business and community concerns. We believe that these young leaders have a great cultural heritage to draw upon as well as unique individual experiences of their own. Our hope is that the practice of law provides a means for these leaders to reach their full potential and transform our shared community.

At present, the Hispanic community is under-represented in the field of law. We’re launching the Steinger, Iscoe & Greene Latin Heritage Law Student Scholarship in order to help change that. This scholarship will be awarded to support one high-achieving Hispanic student planning to pursue a career in law.

Applicants will be judged based on the quality of their essay, the content of their application and their academic merits. We encourage all eligible students to apply and look forward to awarding this scholarship.
