The essay should be no more than seven (7) paragraphs and 750 words.

Applicants shall apply via email [email protected]. Qualified applicants will be currently enrolled in an accredited College or University. Further, the applicant must attend a college or university the following academic semester. Graduate students are welcome to apply.

  2. Name of College or University
  3. Mailing address

  6. Dream Job when out of school


How has the Magna Carta shaped your daily life on campus?

What is the Rule of Law and why is it important in our daily lives?

How has a jury trial has made an impact on you or someone you know?

Does a criminal justice system that revolves around plea-bargaining embrace our forefathers’ vision of a right to a jury trial by a group of his or her peers?

The Magna Carta is credited with the first mention of “no taxation without representation.” How does this notion apply to contemporary society?

The deadline to apply for this scholarship is December 15th of each year.
