2016 ELM Scholarship Award for Leadership Appreciation
Each year, Elite Lawyer Management offers a $1,000 scholarship to an individual who has demonstrated resourceful, initiative-driven leadership that influences their community or academic environments.
We realize many of America’s future leaders are unable to realize their full potential due to a lack of resources. The ELM Scholarship Award for Leadership Appreciation was established to recognize emerging leaders of our Nation who are already making a difference by impacting the people around them and who are passionate about building a better future for themselves and the global community.
Recipients are those who achieve their personal goals while inspiring others along the way. Leadership is represented through a range of acts, from showing initiative in supporting a social cause or developing community programs to motivating others, serving as a role model and standing up for the rights of their peers.
