Each year, the Suffolk County Bar Association awards a $1,000 scholarship to a senior at a public or private Suffolk County high school who plans to attend a four-year college immediately after graduation. The award is designed to promote good citizenship and social awareness as well as to encourage students to think about larger social issues and see themselves as valuable members of their communities. Along with lists of their accomplishments and activities, applicants must submit an essay addressing a social issue that concerns them. The essay is heavily weighted in the scholarship committee’s decision.
The Suffolk County Bar Association was incorporated in 1908 with the purpose of promoting legal reform, encouraging a spirit of congeniality among its members, upholding high standards in the legal profession, and facilitating justice. It reaches out to the community by providing pro bono legal services and other initiatives, such as the scholarship program.
Legal professionals at Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates, P.C., are members of the Suffolk County Bar Association.
