Bott & Associates, LTD
Peace of Mind Scholarship

The dedicated team at Bott & Associates, Ltd. works hard to help give individuals, parents, spouses and families, peace of mind about what will happen to an estate when the owner of the estate is no longer with them. We help people in all different phases of life and people with varying amounts of material possessions and wealth, to plan for what will happen to their assets and personal belongings. We help to give people peace of mind by helping them with plans to help the people and organizations they care about, even after they are gone.

We feel good about the work we do to give people peace of mind for when they are no longer here. We also are thankful to people and organizations that help to give others a peace of mind while they are still here. We know that there are many different ways to help people and that what will give one person a peace of mind might not be the same thing as what someone else needs.

To help to promote people to help give people a better peace of mind than if they were to go without this kind of help, we have created the Bott & Associates, LTD, Peace of Mind Scholarship, 2020. We believe that by helping a student who wants to help others in ways similar to what we do or in ways that are meaningful and helpful that are different to ours, we will be helping to create a better world with a more promising future.
