Car Accident Scholarship
As car accident lawyers, we have helped clients who suffered severe injuries. We have consoled clients who have lost family members to a careless driver. We have also seen car accident survivors who inspire us with their bravery and determination.
That is why Zanes Law is accepting applications from college-bound students who were involved in a car accident and learned valuable life lessons from this experience. Our firm is offering a $2,700 scholarship that can be used toward tuition, room and board, books, and other fees at an accredited college or university.
Share Your Story and You Might Be Awarded a $2,700 Scholarship
We invite local high school students to share their car accident life experience in a 500- to 1,000-word essay. Your essay should be about a time when you were personally involved in a car accident, how you handled the aftermath, and what you learned from the experience.
Here are other essay requirements:
- Your essay must be original and not copied from any other source.
- It must be about a personal life experience involving a car accident.
- Your essay should be double-spaced and without spelling or grammatical errors.
Suggestions to Help You With Your Essay
Your essay should focus on how a car accident affected your life, not the parties to blame or a detailed account of the collision. Our scholarship committee is looking for an applicant who best describes an enduring and positive attitude despite this misfortune.
Some of the points that you could include in your essay are:
- How you coped with your physical and emotional injuries
- What you did to help your family or friends who were also involved in the car accident
- What important life lesson(s) you gained from this experience
- We’d love to get to know you! In addition to your essay, send us a short video (under 3 minutes) introducing yourself with a brief overview of your essay.
*Video is optional
