High Rise Financial is proud to announce its first Scholarship Essay Contest in the amount of $750 to one full-time student who is currently attending a college or university within the United States in 2019. Whether you have a chosen a major or are still undecided, you can apply as long as you meet the requirements found below.
Our company has decided to initiate this new scholarship program in order to provide financial help to hard-working students who have a strong passion for education but have a hard time keeping up with their bills while trying to get through school. With the rising costs of education, including books, we are aware how difficult it can be to make ends meet and we are excited to be able to take some of this burden off the shoulders of at least one student. We anticipate offering additional contests every year moving forward!
Who is High Rise Financial?
High Rise Financial is a legal funding company who offers an alternative to a lawsuit loan. Meaning, we are able to provide victims of personal injury or accidents with cash before their lawsuit eventually settles with absolutely no risk. If the victim happens to lose their case, there is no obligation to pay us back and this is one of the main differences between legal funding and a loan for a lawsuit. Not only does our company help victims with access to money that they may desperately need, we also help prevent victims from being forced into settling too early and for a settlement well below what they actually deserve due to desperation for the settlement funds.
