Local law firm to award $500 educational grants to local students

February 1, 2021 /

Local law firm Chain Cohn Stiles is giving away ten $500 educational grants to local students to help with costs of school.

“We are especially mindful of the challenges students have faced during the pandemic,” said Matt Clark, senior partner at personal injury attorney with Chain | Cohn | Stiles. “This is our way of recognizing these challenges, and hopefully providing students with a little help, encouragement, and education.”

The grant program is meant to help students with financial costs of education, including computer costs, textbooks, college application fees and other school supplies and needs.

Students can apply by visiting chainlaw.com and clicking on the “Chats with Chain | Cohn | Stiles” bar at the top of the website. Students must fill out the application and ask the attorneys a question.

Questions can be about the law, life as a lawyer, or anything in the legal field they may be curious about.

The law firm will choose the question over the next 10 months, and students will get to ask the lawyers their question on video at Scope Studios in Bakersfield.

Questions and answers will be posted on the Chain | Cohn | Stiles YouTube page for all to learn.
