Foundation For Your Future Scholarship 2022

Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro, Moses & Halperin, LLP

If you want to build something, putting down a strong foundation is the first step—and maybe the most important one of all. Same with your education. If you want a successful career, you need to earn the knowledge and put in the work. We know that, because we're New York lawyers who deal with lots of construction accidents. Every day, we see what happens when a strong foundation isn't set. That's why we want to help you build a strong educational foundation that will last the rest of your life.

We at Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro, Moses & Halperin, LLP, are offering a $2,500 scholarship to one deserving high school senior or college student from anywhere in the United States. The deadline to apply is May 11th, 2022, and we'll be announcing the winner on June 8th, 2022. You can never go wrong by trying, so we welcome you to apply to our scholarship. Who knows? Maybe we'll choose you. Even if we don't, we'll be glad to see your effort and wish you future success. Good luck, all!

Extraordinary people leave an indelible mark on the world - and on the people around them. WRSMH's founder, William Wingate, was one of those men. A World War II Navy veteran, Bill served on the Board of Directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, served as Deputy Mayor of the Village of Ocean Beach, and was a leading member in numerous community, religious, and charity organizations, honored and beloved for his contributions. We offer this scholarship on the tenth anniversary of his passing, and ask you to answer a simple question: Who do you look up to, and why?
