David Elden College Scholarship

Inaugural Scholarship

Los Angeles Federal Criminal Lawyer David Elden is proud to launch his inaugural college scholarship for students currently enrolled in a college or university within the United States of America.  David understands the financial challenges students face today when working on earning a higher education.
