Vantage Group Legal is proud to announce The Minority Foreclosure Awareness Scholarship to help support minorities pursuing a legal career.
To do our part towards promoting diversity within the legal world, we are offering a bi-annual $1,000 minority scholarship to be put towards legal education costs.
To qualify, candidates must be accepted to, or currently enrolled in an accredited law school or paralegal program.
Did you know according to Zillow: “Nationally, 19.4 percent of all foreclosures between 2007 and 2015 were in Hispanic communities – but only 9.6 percent of homes are in those same areas. Similarly, 12.7 percent of foreclosures occurred in black communities, while 7.7 percent of all homes are in black communities.”
We are asking applicants to write an essay answering the question: How can legal professionals help minority communities suffering from foreclosure in America?
