2017 Raise Me Up Scholarship2017 Raise Me Up Scholarship

As a divorce and family law practice, we at Schultz & Associates see the worst of what can happen when families are torn apart, and the terrible impact that can have on the children who are caught in the middle.

But we also see many examples of families who rise above unfortunate circumstances, who work together in loving and caring relationships to ensure that the children, despite being raised in a challenging environment, grow and excel beyond their peers to become excellent students and good citizens.

It is with these individuals in mind that Schultz & Associates proudly announces the creation of the 2017 Raise Me Up Scholarship to benefit those who have overcome the disadvantages and obstacles of being raised in a divorced or single-parent household.

If you have any questions, email SchultzAssociate@gmail.com & we’ll respond promptly. Please do not call or chat.
