The 2021 Call Sam Scholarship
Has Ended

The Call Sam Scholarship has ended. Stay tuned for future updates.


A college or vocational school education is a priceless possession. Those with college degrees or technical certifications are more likely to find good paying jobs that lead to fulfilling careers in fields they enjoy. However, this “priceless” commodity comes at a high cost. Many students cannot afford to pay tuition and other expenses without borrowing thousands of dollars, resulting in student loan debt that can take years to repay.

At The Sam Bernstein Law Firm, we appreciate the value of higher education and understand how difficult it is for many people to achieve this worthwhile goal. Since our inception, we have remained committed to helping to improve the lives of our clients as well as the people who live in the communities we serve.

That’s why we’re launching Call Sam Scholars. Our scholarship program will help current and prospective students across Michigan achieve their educational goals. "In honor of our 50th anniversary, we will be giving away $50,000 in scholarships,” says Mark Bernstein of The Sam Bernstein Law Firm. "We are proud to offer this exciting opportunity in helping us achieve our goal of making higher education more accessible to Michigan students."

These scholarships are designed to expand access to Michigan’s colleges, universities and technical/vocational schools for students who need extra support. We strongly believe this investment will provide immeasurable returns as these graduates begin their careers and become valuable contributors to their communities.
