The Law Office of Jeremy Gordon is very different than most other organizations that work with federal prisoners. We are different because we care deeply and genuinely about the plight of the federal prison population. We are also different because we believe in the importance of giving back to our community. Who is our community? The answer may surprise some, but it is each and every one of you. All federal prisoners.
Thus, it is with great pleasure that the Law Office of Jeremy Gordon offers its “Commitment to Change” college scholarship. Through this scholarship, one lucky person will receive free tuition and books covering one three credit semester hour college course from Adams State University, an accredited U.S. university that offers Associate, Bachelor, and Master level degrees to the incarcerated. The scholarship is awarded four times a year via a contest.
To be eligible for the scholarship, you MUST meet the following criteria: (1) Be incarcerated in federal prison; (2) Have a GED or high school diploma; (3) Not already possess a Bachelor’s degree; and (4) submit a recorded piece of spoken word poetry, not longer than 1 minute and 30 seconds by calling 972-483-4865 and asking for Chris.
