California Nursing Home Negligence Scholarship

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

At California Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers, we advocate for families who have experienced elder abuse in a nursing home. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is not uncommon for residents in these institutions. Even more shocking is how frequently it goes unreported.

Maintaining safety in nursing homes is imperative for the residents and their family members, who have entrusted the staff to provide adequate care. The hard reality is that being mistreated in a nursing home is not the only type of institute that has a history of treating people and their patients poorly.

We are passionate about advocating for people who have experienced injustice and holding institutes accountable. Our passion led us to create the 2022 Nursing Home Negligence Scholarship for students to share a time that they were mistreated. Students can reflect on the importance of attorneys who advocate for those who have experienced negligence and unfair treatment.

This is a $1,000 scholarship opportunity. The deadline to apply is December 31, 2022. To learn more about eligibility and requirements, continue reading below.

B) Employees of California Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers, their immediate relatives (parent, child, sibling, and spouse), and anybody residing in the same homes (whether related or not) as such individuals are not eligible to enter the competition.

Application Requirements

A) The candidate must submit a 500 – 1,000 word essay response to the prompt: share a time that an institution mistreated you. Students should then reflect on the importance of attorneys who advocate for those who have experienced negligence and unfair treatment at the hands of others.
