2018 Raise Me Up Scholarship – Sailing Edition

2018 Set Sail Scholarship

“A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor.”

As a divorce and family law practice, we at Schultz & Associates strive to help young individuals who have overcome challenging circumstances that were obviously, no fault of their own.

Although we cannot direct the wind, we can adjust the sails.

Schultz & Associates has a vested interest in supporting and encouraging these individuals who have begun to build a future for themselves. Those individuals often find their own passions to cope with the circumstances they are given. Along many coasts, sailing is an activity that gives liberation to many.

It is with these individuals in mind that Schultz & Associates proudly announces the creation of the 2018 Set Sail $1,000 Scholarship to benefit those who show a great passion for sailing and/or those who have delt with divorced parents/guardians.

The 2018 Set Sail Scholarship Recipient is Hannah Griffin, a third-year student at University of Florida.
