Each year, approximately 6,000 babies are born with Down syndrome, a chromosomal condition that occurs when there is a full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21. This additional gene can affect an individual’s life, educational development, characteristics, personality, and physicality. 

The attorneys at Varghese Summersett PLLC believe in giving back to the community, especially with causes close to our hearts. Two of our criminal attorneys have children with special needs, and in an effort to recognize and honor them, we are proud to offer our annual Varghese Summersett Down Syndrome Scholarship.

This scholarship is intended for a deserving child with Down syndrome who is in need of financial aid to support educational or recreational opportunities. The award may be used towards a camp, tutoring, education, or other tools to help the student thrive, prosper, and have a fulfilling life.
