Once a year, Niren & Associates awards merit-based scholarships for students pursuing higher education with an emphasis in social and applied sciences.
Niren & Associates is a leading immigration law firm in the United States and seeks to make educational opportunities available to those committed to studying and school. Any student who is entering university or college as a full-time student is eligible.
