Defining the Disability Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Oct 31, 2022

At Berkowitz Hanna Malpractice and Injury Lawyers, we have experienced how a disability could affect the daily life of someone. We understand that defining disabilities goes beyond a medical definition. We believe strongly in giving back to our community and do not want to see students give up on their dreams because of disability.

The Defining the Disability Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship available to students who meet the scholarship eligibility requirements below and who best describe in a 750-1,000 word essay what discusses how to define disability in the modern world versus its medical definition? While defining what disability means to you, explain how disability has been part of your life, whether it’s affected someone you know or has had a personal effect.

Eligibility

A) The scholarship is open to any current high school senior, vocational student, college student, or graduate student who is a legal resident of the United States residing in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia and who is enrolled in a vocational program or two to five year post-secondary institution for the 2023 spring semester.

B) Employees of Berkowitz Hanna Malpractice & Injury Lawyers, their immediate families (parent, child, sibling, and spouse), and persons living in the same households of such individuals (whether related or not), are not eligible to participate in the competition.
