Allen & Allen Academic Scholarship Programs
One of the ways Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen is proud to show our commitment to our community is through our annual scholarship programs. Since 1991, we have been privileged to offer tuition and expenses assistance to students throughout the areas we serve who embody the spirit, drive, and ideals of our firm’s founder, George E. Allen Sr. Because of the growing number of applications we receive for this award, we have expanded our scholarship offerings to include a national scholarship program beginning in 2017 to reward students nationwide.
At Allen & Allen, we believe in the value of education. We are dedicated to supporting the next generation of thinkers as they pursue their academic and career goals. Our founder, George E. Allen, Sr. came from humble beginnings, put himself through college with a variety of jobs, and overcame significant challenges to found what is today one of the most celebrated personal injury law firms in America. The regional and national scholarships aim to provide an opportunity for students in the areas we serve and across the country to successfully pursue their passions, just as Mr. Allen did.
The George E. Allen Scholarship recognizes exceptional high school seniors across Virginia by awarding scholarships named in honor of George E. Allen Sr., our firm’s founder.
Despite many challenges early in life, he went on to become the youngest mayor in the history of Lunenburg County at the age of 25. He put himself through college and law school before founding Allen & Allen with his three sons, establishing what would be one of the state’s largest and most successful personal injury law firms.
Each year, 15 scholarships are awarded to students who have worked to overcome significant personal challenges and who are driven to better themselves and serve their community.
In 2017, Allen, Allen, Allen, & Allen began a national scholarship program to provide support for students across the country who are currently enrolled in college.
Rather than write an essay to be considered for a scholarship, we ask applicants to make use of alternative media to help address a problem for people their age. Creating their own video presentation is a strong and effective way to convey their message to their own peer group.
Two National Scholarships will be awarded annually.
