A catastrophic injury is a serious injury that often results in long-term effects and lifestyle changes. These types of injuries result in burns, paralysis, spinal cord breaks, and traumatic brain injuries. As personal injury attorneys at Shiver Hamilton, we understand how devastating these injuries are mentally, physically, and financially for those involved in the accident. Being involved in a catastrophic injury is especially draining to individuals who are pursuing a college education while recovering from their injuries or taking care of a loved one who is injured. That is why we are offering our Surviving a Catastrophic Injury Scholarship to provide one student with $1,000 to use towards their education to help relieve a little bit of their financial burden.
We want students to share with us a story about their catastrophic injury and how they persevered to reach their goals, whether small or big achievements. Students may also share a catastrophic injury story of a loved one persevering through their injuries and how it impacted them. The purpose of this scholarship is to share stories about injuries, but also stories about growth of the individuals who did not let their injuries get in their way.
To be eligible for the Surviving A Catastrophic Injury Scholarship, students must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or law program within the United States. High school seniors who will be enrolled in college before the application deadline of February 28, 2022 are also encouraged to apply. All candidates must be in good academic standing and have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher to be eligible for this scholarship.
To be considered for this scholarship opportunity, a full application must include:
- A current academic transcript, official or unofficial
- An updated resume that lists professional and academic experiences
- In a 750-1,000 word essay, students must share with us a story about their catastrophic injury and how they persevered to reach their goals, whether small or big achievements. Students may also share a catastrophic injury story of a loved one persevering through their injuries and how it impacted them.
