Requirements for the Baizer Kolar P.C. Personal Injury Scholarship
The Baizer Kolar P.C. Personal Injury Scholarship is awarded once each year to a qualifying student who is either entering or currently enrolled in college or graduate school. It is worth $1,000 and may be used to cover any educational expenses, such as tuition, housing, books, and student fees. To qualify for the scholarship, an applicant must meet the following criteria:
He or she must be enrolled in or accepted to an accredited college, university, or graduate school program in the United States;
He or she must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher; and
He or she must have either sustained injuries in an accident or been financially affected by another individual’s accident.
The application requires the student to write a 500 to 600 word essay discussing the accident and its effect on his or her life, a transcript from his or her current institution, and a completed application form. Our team recognizes that attending college or graduate school can be very expensive, even prohibitively so for some individuals. We created this scholarship to help individuals who have suffered from the effects of injuries, either firsthand or a close loved one’s injury, to pursue their educational goals.
