SGKR’s LaSalle County Scholarship

Schweickert Ganassin Krzak Rundio, LLP, a personal injury law firm located in Peru, Illinois, is pleased to announce we’re starting an academic scholarship this year. We understand the financial difficulties many local aspiring college students and their families face and want to do what we can to help. To that end, we’re offering a $2,000 scholarship to one recent high school graduate located in in LaSalle County or Bureau County.

The current open period for our scholarship is Fall 2022. Applications are due by Friday, August 5th.

  • Live in Peru, LaSalle County, or Bureau County, Illinois
  • Be planning to attend a university or college in Fall 2022

To apply for our scholarship, you will need to write a 500+ word essay on how the COVID pandemic impacted your studies. Were there any positives about how you learned to continue your education mid-pandemic, and will you be carrying those methods forward in a post-pandemic world?

You must also follow the instructions below.
