Home » 2023 Hometown Pride Scholarship


Congratulations to our 2022 Hometown Pride Scholarship winner Jessica Scheer. We are excited to offer this scholarship opportunity again this year with our 2023 Hometown Pride Scholarship.

At The Kryder Law Group, LLC Accident and Injury Lawyers, we take special pride in serving the people of Illinois and being able to call this state our home. We understand that being from a certain town, city, or even state is an important part of a person’s identity and personality. Our Hometown Pride Scholarship is intended for students to share stories about why they are proud to be from their hometown or state, and what effect it has had on them. Whether you lived in your hometown or state your whole life, or call a new place your home, we want to hear all about why where you came from is important to you. 

Through our 2023 Hometown Pride Scholarship, we will award one deserving student with $1,000 to assist them in obtaining their education and their future endeavors.
