At Doehrman Buba, we believe in community and in education. We understand the importance of giving back, which is why members of our firm regularly volunteer our time at local non-profits. We also recognize the power of education to transform lives. That is why we are pleased to announce the Doehrman Buba Give Back Scholarship 2020.
The cost of college has continued to skyrocket in the United States. Students in Indiana face many obstacles to attending college, university or another post-high school educational institution. The Give Back Scholarship aims to ease this burden while providing an incentive for students to get involved in our communities by volunteering with Indiana nonprofit organizations.
Doehrman Buba is offering a total award of $3,000. Our Give Back Scholarship is unique in that not only does it help students pay tuition, but a portion of the award ($500) will go directly to the nonprofit organization where the student volunteered his or her time. As a firm that is committed to giving back, we want to reward the next generation of students who choose to do the same. The Doehrman Buba Give Back Scholarship 2020 is our way of recognizing those students who go above and beyond for their communities.
