Humanitarian Scholarships


Union members are the backbone of this country and work hard to build, protect and serve all of us. In honor of these great women and men, Schwartzapfel® Lawyers P.C. has established multiple law school scholarships at both Touro Law Center and Pace University School of Law to benefit students whose parents are union members in good standing.

This year, Schwartzapfel® Lawyers P.C. is proud to partner with Touro Law School to fund two (2) $2,500 student scholarships each year for the next five years. If you are a current law student, the son or daughter of a union member, have a 3.0 GPA or higher, and are in financial need, we encourage you to apply. All applicants will be required to submit a 500-word essay describing what inspired you to pursue a law degree.
