2021 Dugan & Associates Scholarship Essay Competition

Dugan & Associates is passionate about championing our community. We are here to serve the Pittsburgh region. One small facet of our charitable efforts is awarding a modest $1,000 post-secondary education scholarship annually to a deserving high school student.

We believe continuing education after high school strengthens our communities in Western Pennsylvania. This is true whether a young adult attends a college/university or a technical school. Our scholarship supports both worthy paths.

To be eligible, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Currently enrolled as a high school student in the Greater Pittsburgh region
  • Intend to continue education after high school at a university, college, or technical school matriculating fall of 2022
  • In good standing both inside and outside of school

To enter and compete for the $1,000 scholarship, please write a 500-word essay responding to the following prompt:

Mitch Dugan fights for the check you deserve. What do you fight for or aspire to fight for?

Essays must be submitted electronically via the form below with all required contact information completed no later than Wednesday, December 22, 2021, by 11:59 PM. The scholarship winner will be announced on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.

We look forward to your submissions. Good luck.

Kind regards,

Mitch Dugan
