2021 Selfless Parent Scholarship

Mission:

One way some parents help their kids is by providing financial support for higher education. We know how hard and stressful this can be, so we decided to offer a scholarship to help relieve some of the financial burdens on students and their parents.

As a family lawyer, Tammy Begun at Capital Family Law Group sees every day how parents work to make the best decisions they can for their children, even if that means putting their own interests aside. One way many parents try and support their kids is by helping to pay for school. This can be a large burden on parents that are not well off financially. To help relieve some of this burden, our firm started the Selfless parent Scholarship to give students a chance to share how their parents have made sacrifices to help the student succeed.
