Since 2010, Allen & Allen has hosted their George E. Allen Academic Scholarship program, which awards $2,000 scholarships to high school seniors every year. The firm chooses 15 graduates across Virginia who have had to overcome adversity to achieve academic success, much like the firm founder George E. Allen did.
On May 10th, graduates and their families gathered at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, where they mingled with Allen & Allen attorneys and staff. President Edward Allen gave a welcoming speech, and 4th generation Allen and fellow attorney Scott Fitzgerald shared why the firm started the scholarship program, and its legacy of giving back to the community.
It was an evening of inspiring stories, delicious food, and great company. Get to know our 2022 recipients, all of whom are most certainly going to make a positive impact in Virginia and beyond!
