When you see something that you believe is wrong, what do you do? Are you someone that pushes the scene to the side and ignores it? Or are you someone that takes action and points out the wrongdoing? If you are an individual that stands up and calls out the injustice, then you can call yourself a whistleblower!
Every day, Tony Munter, Whistleblower attorney at Price Benotwitz, LLP, assists others in fighting for what is right by helping them expose wrongdoings. Tony understands the power behind using your resources to take a stand to uncover the inequity in your community. No matter how small or large the wrongdoing, taking action against lawlessness is how individuals work together to build a community based on common values.
For that reason, Tony Munter Attorney at Law is proud to announce the 2020 Whistleblower Education Scholarship. The scholarship will award $1000 to a student who has taken a stand against wrongful actions. Students will explore how much of an impact they can make by taking a stand and the value of doing so.

This includes incoming first-year college students who are either high school graduates or in possession of a GED.

To apply, please provide the following:
