Selecting The Winner

The submission deadline is 11:59 pm September 15, 2024; any submissions received after that time will not be considered.

TriMark Legal Funding will form a selection committee to review all submissions and determine the winner.

The selection committee does not discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex (including gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or gender identity), national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or any other protected class.

The committee will make every effort to announce the winner of the 2024 Financial Literacy NOW Scholarship within 45-60 days following the deadline. However, the committee reserves the right to shorten or extend this timeframe should it become necessary due to a significantly larger than-expected volume of submissions received.

Notification

The winner of the 2024 Financial Literacy Scholarship will be notified by email, with follow-up text and/or phone calls if necessary.

Upon successful notification and acceptance, an announcement will be made via a press release, and will be posted to the TriMark Legal Funding blog, and this page will be updated as well.

This page will also have an announcement for all applicants on the status of the 2024 Financial Literacy Scholarship award once a winner has been selected.

If the selected winner cannot be reached or does not complete the steps to accept the award within 14 calendar days from the original notification date, the scholarship will be forfeited. An alternate winner will then be selected and notified.

The scholarship award check will be made payable to and sent via USPS to the winner’s school. Checks cannot be made payable to, or be sent directly to, the winner.
