2017 Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. Scholarship

As attorneys, we at Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. understand the value of a good education. Indeed, all of us have earned both undergraduate and law degrees. While we believe that education is the pathway to success, we also believe that no one should be denied an education for economic reasons.

For this reason, we’ve decided to offer a supplemental scholarship of $500 to a deserving student. We became personal injury attorneys so we could help those in need, and this scholarship is an extension of that desire.
