Andrew E. Goldner Heart of Gold Scholarship

Andrew E. Goldner is proud to announce the Heart of Gold Scholarship, worth $500. This scholarship is designated for those who work with children in a professional or volunteer capacity, and plan to further their education in a child-related field.

Though it’s a common cliche, the saying is true: Children really are the future. Now more than ever, we invest so much of our time and energy, both professionally and personally, to ensure children receive the best education, care and instruction possible. Yet, it’s also true that working with children on a daily basis can be a tiring and often thankless endeavor.

At the Law Offices and Andrew E. Goldner, we know that working with young people isn’t for everyone. We also know that those who dedicate their lives to working with children have a heart of gold. We have created this scholarship to help those who have a passion for bettering our youth continue their education to serve children — and our society as a whole — in a greater capacity.

Value: $500

Deadline: December 1
