The Caring Community Scholarship

The Attorneys at Marcus & Mack have always valued giving back to the community. Marcus & Mack is involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Blair County, Junior Achievement of Western Pennsylvania, The Learning Lamp, and the Children’s Aid Society, just to name a few. These organizations give the firm opportunities to help local children in need. The firm also donates over $10,000 annually to local schools scholarship programs. Now, Marcus & Mack wants to hear how you help your community!

The Caring Community Scholarship is a $2,000 scholarship award available to one student who has worked to make their community a better place. Specifically, Marcus & Mack wants you to provide one example of a problem you saw in your community, what you did to combat it, and the positive impact your efforts had on your community, as well as on yourself. Our hope is that this scholarship will encourage students to get involved in their communities in whatever capacity they can. No effort is too small when it comes to helping others!
