Our asbestos scholarship fund was established over 50 years ago with the purpose of providing financial help to children and grandchildren of our clients whose asbestos litigation cases had been settled. Over 160 students receiving the asbestos scholarships have attended 47 colleges and universities, including Auburn University, University of Alabama, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, Stillman College, Spelman College, and University of Alabama at Birmingham(UAB). In 2005 we extended the eligibility requirements to include all students who have a family member diagnosed with cancer.
The eligibility criteria for our 2019 scholarship program are the following:
A) Applicants must be at least 18 years old and U.S. citizens
B) Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a U.S. accredited two-year or four-year university, community college or junior college, or in a graduate degree program
C) Applicants must have a minimum Grade Point Average of 3.0 or higher
D) Applicants must be students who witnessed a parent, sibling or other immediate family member battling cancer
