Scholarship applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Martin Gerel Memorial Scholarhip. Winners are awarded $5000 to study at the school of their choice. Winners must be enrolled in a college, university or trade school by Fall 2020 to be eligible to receive the award.
The law firm of ASHCRAFT & GEREL, LLP, has always valued their connection with the Washington, DC union movement. In recognition of this special relationship, the firm established a Union Scholarship Program more than 30 years ago.
Selection will be based on an evaluation of academic ability, a statement of goals, participation in extracurricular activities (including community work) and/or employment. A committee of volunteers from the participating unions will screen the applications. Union affiliations of the applicants will be anonymous to the volunteers. Ultimately, an outside source will make the final selection. The law firm of ASHCRAFT & GEREL, LLP will not participate in the selection process. This is an equal opportunity scholarship. The award process is to be conducted without regard to race, gender, religion, age or handicap.
