Miami, FL – Ricky Patel, Esq. is pleased to announce the launch of his Pay It Forward Scholarship, which will provide over $20,000.00 a year to law students who have established a social program that helps those in need.

A renowned lawyer, philanthropist and author, Mr. Patel says that the scholarship has been a dream of his for many years.

“The goal of the scholarship is to provide resources to those who are creating their own giving back programs,” he says. “This will start a movement. Instead of funding someone’s law degree based on pure academia, I want to provide them with the tools necessary to build their own platform of giving back.”

The Pay It Forward Scholarship will be awarded annually to four incoming law students who have established a social program that gives back to those in need. Successful applicants will be those who have discovered unique ways of resolving social issues.
