The Greene Broillet & Wheeler Scholarship

Greene Broillet and Wheeler Scholarship

At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, our motto is "Where Success is a Tradition." This applies not only to the way we approach the law, but also to academic achievement. As such, we are proud to offer five (5) scholarships ($1,000 each, sent directly to the winners' schools) to help exceptional young people begin or continue their educational journeys and start making success their own tradition.

Fostering success is not the only reason that we offer these scholarships. All of our founding partners and many of our current partners were the first in their families to go to college. We understand the dedication, hard work and financial responsibility that are required to get an education and start down the path to a bright future. As such, we provide these scholarships to help lessen the financial stress of paying for an education, allowing the selected applicants to spend more time focusing on their studies.
