MyPhillyLawyer Accident Survivor Scholarship
Application Deadline: September 30, 2017
MyPhillyLawyer is offering a scholarship to assist students in law school or college who are overcoming injuries caused by a car accident, medical error or other incident caused by negligence.
In the course of our work, the attorneys of MyPhillyLawyer have met many people struggling with life-altering injuries. We consider it a privilege to be able to assist families in obtaining compensation for such injuries, and we decided that we want to give back to the community in another way as well. We have been particularly inspired by the young people we have met who have overcome serious injuries and gone on to succeed in higher education or in law school, and we established this scholarship to help them.
The scholarship will be offered on an annual basis to a student who has suffered a serious injury resulting from another’s negligence and is entering or enrolled in an accredited law school or college. Students who wish to apply should submit a brief personal statement of 500 words or less about how the incident affected the student’s life and how they overcame their injury. The winner of the scholarship will be based on the strength of the personal statement.
The scholarship amount is $2,500 and the deadline is September 30, 2017.
