Kelsey’s Law Distracted Driving Awareness Scholarship

We are proud to announce the first annual Kelsey's Law Distracted Driving Awareness Scholarship for Michigan high school seniors has launched. You may be familiar with Kelsey's Law, which prohibits the use of cell phones for Level 1 and 2 drivers in the state. Our law firm teamed up with Kelsey's mother, Bonnie Raffaele, to honor Kelsey, inspire change in teens who drive distracted and help prevent car accidents.

ROTC Scholarships

ROTC is offered at many colleges.  The program offers full tuition, books, and a monthly stipend in the freshman year.  If you accept the scholarship, you have a commitment for active or reserve duty when you graduate.  Currently that commitment is three to four years.  Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines all have ROTC programs.
