Robert Wayne Pearce Investor Fraud Awareness Scholarship

The Law Offices of Robert Pearce proudly supports the education of both undergraduate and law school students in their pursuit of achieving their academic pursuits.

Our attorneys understand that paying for college can be difficult. Especially if you are a first-generation student. This is why we will be renewing the Robert Wayne Pearce Investor Fraud Awareness Scholarship for 2022!

Our hope is that this scholarship will not only help financially but educate younger generations about the dangers of investor fraud so they can invest with confidence.

We are proud of 2021 Scholarship Award winners for their thoughtful essays on last year’s topic and hope you will be inspired by this year’s Robinhood topic to do some research, educate yourself, and be creative when writing your essay.

Scholarship Contest Details

To enter, write a 500-word thoughtful essay about whether you believe that Robinhood Markets, Inc. (“Robinhood”) Investment App is a good tool for novice investors or just a game to take advantage of them and make money for the stock brokerage firm.

We are interested in learning whether you think the Robinhood platform is living up to the legend of Robinhood, who took from the rich and gave to the poor! The winner will receive $2,500 to put towards their tuition.
