The “One Lawyer Can Change the World” $10,000 scholarship will be paid directly to the law school that the winner indicates they will be enrolling in this fall — hopefully making law school more affordable for one entering 1L.

Nearly 60 entries were received for the contest and $10,000 in prize money was offered. Participants wrote essays on a variety of mesothelioma topics: a mesothelioma sufferer’s personal story, the history of asbestos use in American industry / manufacturing, and the latest developments in medical treatments for mesothelioma. The scholarship money from the essay contest is one way the law firm encourages younger people to learn about the disease. The contest is also designed to generate enthusiasm by encouraging the public to support the entrants and their essays via Facebook. Through this outreach, our hope is that the contestants will spread the word about mesothelioma to family and friends, and expand the reach of mesothelioma awareness.

Quinlan, our San Francisco personal injury attorneys see countless cases of people being injured in accidents that were caused by texting & driving. The theme of the scholarship is “Don’t Text & Drive,” and we are giving $1,000 two times per year beginning in September (2016). Every day, 1000s of people are injured in the U.S. as a result of texting and driving and studies have shown that young-adults aged 18-24 are more than twice as likely to cause an accident while texting and driving than any other age group. We want to raise awareness about this issue with 18-24 year olds.

Social media has become a big part of how we communicate with each other, and a big part of our daily lives altogether. Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C. cares about the future of drivers, whether they are a novice or experienced, and we work towards making our roads as safe as possible. To help increase the awareness about social media’s impact on driving, our Texas car accident lawyers are sponsoring our 2nd annual essay contest with $5,000 in prizes to help young people further their education.

We are a tough Georgia law firm that will fight to the finish for our clients. But our associates know that not every battle is fought in the courtroom. Fighting a disease requires more than a legal “Strong Arm”—it requires a dedicated team of medical staff, loved ones and countless more. Fighting leukemia requires determination, drive and diligence in both the patient and the patient’s loved ones. Often, the battle is a solitary one, isolating the patient and family. Our firm associates recognize this. That’s why we are delighted to introduce the first-ever John Foy & Associates “Strong Arm” Leukemia Scholarship. Our $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to one college student who has battled leukemia or whose life has been affected by it.

We have discovered that nothing matters more in the early life of a youth charged with a crime than lawyers, legal professionals, and judges who are committed to defending the rights of the youth.

Financial difficulties make it even worse, and we haven’t forgotten how difficult law school was for us — and how expensive it is, too. So we set up the Kennerly Loutey Scholarship Essay to make it easier for a student every year. It’s a $2,000 prize to the top essay, as chosen by us.

But we believe it’s just as important to nourish the next generation of leaders and professionals—and we want to do that where it matters most. Many of us involved in the site have seen firsthand how diabetes can change a life. Often, it comes without warning and it can radically alter how a person lives from day to day. But we also believe that diabetes should not be an impediment to pursuing your dreams. We want to help a student with diabetes complete their college education and launch their career. That’s why we are delighted to introduce the first-ever Los Angeles DUI Attorney Diabetes Scholarship. Our $1,000 Scholarship will be awarded to both undergraduate and graduate students who have been diagnosed with any type of diabetes and carry a 3.0 GPA.

It was established to provide financial support to a law student whose life has been impacted by a family member serving in the Marine Corps and who is seeking to continue their education through law school.

They put themselves at risk every day to extinguish fires that are dangerous and often life threatening. Our society looks to them as heroes, men and women who will selflessly do anything for their community. While Philadelphia personal injury lawyer Jeff Rosenbaum knows how appreciative our society is to the men and women who serve, he recognizes that no one can be more influenced by these firefighters than their children. A parent’s occupation plays a major role in a child’s life, so we want to hear from them. We are offering a $3000 student scholarship to a college student of a firefighter who can embody what is its like to grow up with your parent in this occupation.

At the Sattiraju Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping hard-working people get the just pay and treatment they deserve. We want to expand our efforts of helping people by investing in the next generation of lawyers. That’s why we are sponsoring a $1,000 scholarship for students who are planning or are currently attending law school, and will not have graduated by December 31, 2016. Even though all students with plans or who are currently attending law school are encouraged to apply, special consideration will be given to those who plan or are specializing in employment law or who are the immediate relative of a transport/truck driver that has been classified as an independent contractor. We believe employment law is an especially important area of law and want to encourage those who are committed to helping workers.

As such, we are proud to offer five (5) scholarships ($1,000 each, sent directly to the winners’ schools) to help exceptional young people begin or continue their educational journeys and start making success their own tradition. Fostering success is not the only reason that we offer these scholarships. All of our founding partners and many of our current partners were the first in their families to go to college. We understand the dedication, hard work and financial responsibility that are required to get an education and start down the path to a bright future. As such, we provide these scholarships to help lessen the financial stress of paying for an education, allowing the selected applicants to spend more time focusing on their studies.

Our goal is to provide students with assistance in obtaining a higher education, and taking some of the financial burden off of hard working students by offering a bi-annual scholarship in the amount of $1,000.

(“Bar Foundation”) was formed in 2009 to serve as the philanthropic arm of the St. Joseph County Bar Association. The purpose of the Bar Foundation is to establish, support and conduct programs and activities designed to promote the public’s understanding of law and the legal system and to establish and award scholarships for the study of law.

Priority will be given to students exhibiting financial need and who represent the opportunity to enhance, broadly, diversity within the profession. The Bar Foundation intends to work with the admissions offices at both law schools to identify students meeting these criteria. The tuition stipend amount is $5,000 a semester and is paid directly to the law school to the credit of the student’s account.

Black, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1989 to support and foster high legal practice standards by assisting Rhode Island residents who show promise that they will become outstanding lawyers and who need financial assistance to study law. The Scholarship is in honor of the late Thomas F. Black, Jr., a person known for his impressive ability as a lawyer and banker, his deeply rooted legal scholarship and his notable participation in civic and charitable causes.
