Each year, the Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen, LLP awards a one-time $1,000 scholarship to a California high school graduate who seeks to be enrolled in an accredited four-year college or university following completion of high school.
As lawyers, we understand the value of obtaining a degree from an institution of higher education, be it an undergraduate or graduate degree. We want to encourage California high school students to continue their education after high school and that is why we offer this scholarship.
