The law firm of Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. have committed to awarding the Ethiopian College Scholarship of $1,000 per year ($4,000 total) to a qualified applicant. The law firm of Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. has had long and close ties to the immigrant communities within the Washington, D.C. area including individuals of Ethiopian heritage. We recognize that this group of individuals has made significant contributions to the economy and culture of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. We at Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. want to encourage all newcomers to this country to avail themselves of the educational opportunities to the greatest extent possible. Only by obtaining an education will new immigrants to the United States fully integrate into the society and economy and become self-sufficient. In order to assist in this endeavor, the law firm has established the Ethiopian Heritage College Scholarship for college-bound high school seniors. The application has not yet been finalized but watch our website for more news on this topic. We welcome all community associations, high schools, churches and others that have contacts with this community to begin advising their constituents of the opportunity that will be made available in the spring of 2008 to students entering college in the fall 2008.
