Thomas Law Offices, a personal injury law firm in Louisville, Kentucky, is offering a once-yearly $1,000 scholarship to students who are currently attending or plan to attend their first year of college or graduate school in the upcoming fall semester. The rising costs of education are continuing to be a hardship many students struggle to overcome. Our Louisville personal injury lawyers believe that by helping students overcome those struggles, our world can become a brighter place for future generations. This scholarship gives us an opportunity to do just that.

We first started the scholarship in 2016.

Scholarship Details and Guidelines

  • Students can be attending or planning to attend any college or graduate school in the United States.
  • To receive scholarship funds, you must be living in the United States (with a U.S. mailing address) at the time of the scholarship’s due date.
  • All applicants must be attending or plan on attending for their first year.
  • As proof of your first-year status, you will need to submit a digital copy of your acceptance letter—complete with the college letterhead—from that college.
  • All applications for the current semester are due by Friday, July 12, 2019.

Essay Topic

To apply, you’ll need to submit a 500+ word essay on the following topic:

Explain a time that you were truly grateful for someone else’s help and how it impacts you today.

Once the application period closes, Thomas Law Offices will determine a winner based on the following factors: feasibility, originality, creativity, and the applicant’s level of knowledge in the topic as well as their ability to write a well-crafted essay. We aren’t necessarily looking for an “A”-grade essay from an English or law student, but rather an essay that explores the topic uniquely.

By submitting your essay to us, you agree that your essay may be featured on our blog. We will publish the winning essay as well as a couple of the top contenders. Published essays may appear with minor edits in place.

Deadline: July 12, 2019
