Each year, Weiss & Paarz will offer a rising star scholarship and award a $1,000 to a student starting or continuing his/her undergraduate education anywhere in the United States of America.
As a law firm that exclusively handles medical malpractice, our attorneys, paralegals, and staff members have dedicated their careers to helping victims of preventable catastrophic injury. Just as we never let a client's financial restrictions get in the way of achieving justice, we firmly believe that no student should be deprived of the opportunity to succeed due to a lack of financial resources. We are especially interested in young individuals who plan to become lawyers. We are confident in the youth of America's ability to change our world for the better through strong character development, community enrichment, and higher education.
We are thrilled to announce the fourth year of this exciting scholarship opportunity. Scholarships will be awarded each year to the student who demonstrates all of the following qualities and characteristics:
A) Financial need
B) Exceptional work ethic
C) Strength in the face of adversity
