What Is It?

The Young Wooldridge “Personal History” Scholarship is a $1,500 scholarship offered to college students at any US university, college, community college, or trade school. Our firm knows the importance of continuing education, and we want to help a student with their journey.

Why “Personal History?”

Young Wooldridge is a Bakersfield, California based law firm founded in 1939. We have a long history in the Bakersfield and Kern County community, and we appreciate the history of the town, the people, and our own firm.
