Greensboro, N.C. – January 23, 2013 – College students have been hit hard by our slow growing economy, leaving the average student with $24,000 of school loan debt at graduation according to the New York Times. To help overcome some of this financial burden, CR Legal Team law will award six North Carolina students with $2,500 scholarships.
“Giving back to the communities we serve has always been a main focus of CR Legal Team ,” President & CEO Chris Roberts said. “In fact, we’ve provided close to $140,000 in scholarships and computers in the past six years because we believe in standing up for our children’s futures.”
The CR Legal Team Founder’s Scholarship is designed for North Carolina high school seniors who will be attending a four-year college or university in the fall. It is an essay based scholarship and the firm is looking for students with a 2.5 GPA who have original ideas about how to promote attentive driving among our younger drivers. Having seen the devastation of distracted driving first-hand, CR Legal Team is committed to educate young people on the importance of staying focused behind the wheel.
The CR Legal Team Next-Step Scholarship is designed for North Carolina community college students who are transferring to a four-year college or university in the fall to continue their education. Students must have a 2.5 GPA or higher and will also be judged on their written essays regarding ideas on how to reverse the National Transportation Safety Board’s staggering statistic of six thousand deaths and injuries caused by distracted driving.
The deadline for applying for the Founder’s and Next-Step scholarships is March 15TH, and winners will be announced on or around May 1, 2013. To learn more about these scholarships and download applications, visit CrumleyRoberts.com.
