The lawyers at Simon Greenstone Panatier Bartlett are once again providing financial aid for college to Dallas County students whose lives have been affected by cancer. The firm will provide scholarships, which students can use for tuition, books and fees during the 2017-18 academic year.
This will be the third year the firm has provided the scholarships, through the Communities Foundation of Texas, bringing the total amount donated to $150,000. So far, scholarship recipients have gone on to attend Purdue, Kansas State, Texas A&M, Collin Community College, Samford University, Texas A&M Commerce, the University of Texas at Arlington and Austin College.
We have seen – through the experiences of our clients – what cancer can do to an individual, to a family,” says founding shareholder David Greenstone at the firm. “This is just a small way for us to help.
The Simon Greenstone Panatier Bartlett Scholarship Benefitting Families Impacted By Cancer provides multiple, single-year scholarships to graduating high school seniors from any Dallas County public or private school, and previous scholarship recipients, who:
Have an immediate family member (mother, father, stepmother, stepfather, brother or sister) who is under a current cancer diagnosis and/or treatment for cancer;
