2018 Seth Okin Good Deeds Scholarship
As an attorney, Seth Okin wakes up every day ready to serve and defend the rights of his clients. He is dedicated to making a difference in the local Maryland communities where he lives and practices law. As an animal lover and a father, he constantly speaks out against animal cruelty and supports all efforts to improve the lives of children in his community.
However, with so many competing for charities and interests in today’s world, it can be extremely difficult to decide where the most important work must be done. Should we focus on curing disease or preventing it? Should we fund disaster relief abroad or fight homelessness at home? Because there are sometimes no easy or apparent answers to the big questions that underpin our good deeds and our lives of activism, it is important to keep the lines of dialogue open about what it means to serve our communities and how best to direct our efforts and resources.
Mr. Okin is proud to contribute to the national discussion on community service by sponsoring the Seth Okin Good Deeds Scholarship. The winner will be awarded a $500 scholarship that will enable him or her to pursue educational goals with the ultimate purpose of creating a meaningful life of service to others.
The Seth Okin Good Deeds Scholarship can be offered to any student pursuing a post-secondary education (community college, undergraduate or graduate degree programs, law school, or business school). Applicants must be both interested and engaged in serving their community and must have a GPA of 3.0 or greater (indicating good academic standing) to apply.

- An updated resume,
