“Being an international student from middle-class family background, and choosing the education and the career journey with various uncertainties in my mind. Winning the scholarship from the education I have achieved did not just help me to cut off the tuition fee but also helped me to realize my inner potential and motivated me to assure the decision I took on pursuing my career in Filmmaking.”
University of Wisconsin-Stout
Spring 2022 Nicolet Law Scholarship Recipient
“This scholarship gave me an opportunity to explore more into one of my favorite hobbies – videography. Not many scholarships ask for a video, so I was ecstatic to be able to delve deep into something I’m passionate about. The scholarship helped me during my last semester at college, which was an 18-credit course load. I’m beyond blessed to have been chosen to receive this scholarship and am forever grateful for the help received.”
University of Minnesota-Twin Cites
Fall 2022 Nicolet Law Scholarship Recipient
“I would like to say that the Nicolet Law scholarship, with other scholarships I have received, helped me to get into the path of becoming my dream profession- a Lawyer. Personally, for me, as one who is very passionate about becoming a lawyer receiving a scholarship from the law firm is considered the first step into my future career. It is great to record a video thinking about global issues and then send it to the judge of the lawyers from another part of the world. It creates a sense of one global community, a community of present lawyers and future lawyers.”
