Steinberg Law Firm is offering a $1,000 scholarship to a student who has experienced a serious injury due to an occurrence such as, but not limited to, a car accident or medical malpractice. To qualify, applicants must be a rising or current first year student of an accredited college or law school as well as submit a personal statement, not surpassing 500 words. This brief synopsis will describe the applicant’s situation: an account of the occurrence, the impact it has had on their life and the ways the applicant has successfully overcome their detriments. The personal statement’s strength will determine the recipient of the scholarship.
Accidents due to the careless behavior of others can be heavily taxing both financially and emotionally even when physical injury has been overcome. As a law firm with years of experience helping clients that have suffered injuries get the compensation they deserve, the Steinberg Law Firm understands the burden of injury. We strive to make the pursuit of higher education possible for individuals who have conquered serious injuries from various types of accidents.
