KJK Special Education Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: February 28, 2022

At Kohrman, Jackson & Krantz, we are inspired by those who overcome obstacles to succeed in education. Special education students have unique circumstances and must overcome challenges that other students may not typically encounter in their education.

In addition to students, we have a special place in our hearts for those who feel a calling to teach these amazing students. Teachers who dedicate their careers to teaching special education students demonstrate a rare gift through their patience and compassion, while providing personalized experiences for their students to ensure that they are given the same opportunity to receive a meaningful education.

In order to support individuals who are the backbones for their school's special education programs, we are excited to announce the KJK Special Education Scholarship. The KJK Special Education Scholarship will reward future special education teachers as well as special education students looking to pursue additional education with a $1,000 scholarship to help them follow their dreams. To be considered for the KJK Special Education Scholarship, please answer the following prompt in 750-1,000 words: In your opinion what are the strengths of the special education system, and what changes do you believe could be made to help improve it?

B) Those who are employed at Kohrman, Jackson & Krantz as well as their immediate families as well as those living in the same households of previously mentioned individuals (whether related or not), are not eligible to apply for the KJK Special Education Scholarship.
