The essay that students submit needs to be between 500 and 1,000 words in length. The firm will consider students’ interpretation of the 7th Amendment as well as their perspective on its application before awarding its $2,500 to the winning student.
McCoy & Hiestand, PLC, also require that students applying for the 7th Amendment Scholarship submit proof of:
