Education Accessibility Scholarship-Are you the first in your immediate family to go to college? If so, this scholarship may be for you.

Getting into college can be one of the most exciting times in a person’s life. However, all too often, that excitement is hindered by the financial burdens of tuition and the other costs associated with higher education. Connecticut Trial Firm is proud to extend a scholarship to a deserving student who is the first in their immediate family to go to college. Both Andrew Garza and Ryan McKeen, Partners of the firm, were the first in their families to attend a four-year college. It is important to the firm to support and encourage students who find themselves in the same position.
