The Todd J. Leonard Law Firm Accident Survivor Scholarship
Award: $1,000 – Application Deadline: October 1, 2017
The Todd J. Leonard Law Firm is making a $1,000 scholarship available annually to an individual who survived or was affected by a serious accident caused by negligence, and is attending or enrolled in an accredited college, university or law school.
The scholarship is available to survivors, or immediate family members of survivors, of car accidents, medical malpractice, or other incidents where someone else’s negligence caused them harm. To be considered, applicants should submit a personal statement of 500 words or less describing the accident and injuries, and how the individual has persevered to overcome the harm they suffered.
Through our personal injury work at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, we have been privileged to know many people who have trusted us to represent them after a devastating injury, or loss of a loved one. We have been impressed with the fortitude of these individuals, whose inner strength helped them overcome the significant adversity brought on by a serious accident. We are honored to help families obtain compensation for their injuries, and the Accident Survivor Scholarship is a way for us to give back and help those students who have endured injuries, or lost a loved one, pay for their higher education costs.
