Mark Sherman Law Juvenile Justice Scholarship
Since 1998 attorney Mark Sherman has been committed to serving his clients and enabling justice to be had, and prides himself on giving his clients the highest level of professional care. Following this mission, Mark has established the Juvenile Justice Scholarship to support up-and-coming lawyers.
The Law Offices of Mark Sherman, based in Stamford, Connecticut, is pleased to announce the renewal of the firm’s Juvenile Justice Scholarship for 2022. The scholarship will award $1,000 to one student who has an interest in working with young people who have been convicted of a crime and sent to jail. We want to support them in seizing new opportunities and giving them the means to succeed in their community. Applicants may share their own experience overcoming adversity and can relate to juveniles working to rebuild their lives out of jail.
We are thrilled to continue offering this scholarship opportunity for another year. To learn more about previous recipients, check out our winners page.

- A 500-1,000 word essay describing a rehabilitative program you would design for the purpose of supporting our youth and reducing jail times. The goal of the program would be to reduce the rate of juvenile recidivism by creating and promoting opportunities for youth in your community.
