The law firm of Ashcraft & Gerel, LLP has always valued their connection with the Washington, DC Union Movement. In recognition of this special relationship, the firm established a Union Scholarship Program more than 30 years ago. We are pleased to honor this commitment by providing a scholarship in memory of Martin E. Gerel. The law firm of ASHCRAFT & GEREL, LLP offers this Scholarship to Washington, DC metropolitan area union members and their families to help with the high cost of education.
