Scholarships and DUI Convictions

An individual convicted of DUI can face many obstacles in their academic future. These charges can affect a person's application for admission to a school, as universities often look at moral character as well as prior academic achievement. In addition, a person convicted of DUI may find it exceedingly difficult to obtain a scholarship for their education. Often, the expense of higher education requires an individual to obtain support in the form of grants or scholarships, so a DUI might make school unattainable.

It is important that you do not risk these and other severe consequences unnecessarily. If you have been arrested and charged with DUI, there is no time to delay. Contact the Seattle DUI lawyers of the Cowan Kirk Gaston Law Firm today by calling 866-822-1230.

DUI and Financial Aid

Financial aid typically requires that students have nothing in their background which exhibits questionable character. A private scholarship may prove exceedingly difficult to get if a student has a recent DUI conviction on his or her record. A DUI conviction can lead to the following circumstances:

  • It may be difficult to gain a scholarship with any DUI conviction
  • It is impossible to gain federal aid with a drug-related DUI conviction
  • It can be extremely difficult to gain a scholarship with a felony-grade DUI conviction
  • It is likely that one will lose a scholarship or private aid with a DUI conviction

To preserve your educational future in the wake of a DUI arrest, it is critically important that you work with a skilled and experienced Seattle DUI defense attorney.
