As a personal injury law firm, Kaine Law is dedicated to improving local communities and achieving justice on all fronts. To that end, we have established the Growing Your Community Scholarship.
In terms of eligibility, we are looking for either current high school, undergraduate, or graduate students or soon-to-be students that were accepted to an accredited college, university, or graduate school.
The $1,500 award will go to the entrant whom Kaine Law deems to be most in line with our vision of improving communities. Whether through the creation of community service projects, enrollment in volunteer opportunities, or other factors, write a compelling essay on your commitment to your school and community and you could win $1,500 toward your education.
About the Growing Your Community Scholarship
Community is at the heart of any good personal injury law firm. At Kaine Law, we desire to improve our local area by helping injured people get justice and compensation for harms they suffered through no fault of their own. But we recognize that there are hundreds of ways to help grow your community.
We developed the Growing Your Community Scholarship as a way to reward and encourage students who think about and implement ways to serve others. This can be something as simple as volunteering at a soup kitchen or as complex as creating your own non-profit.
There is no better way to assist others in improving their communities than by encouraging education, but schooling often costs a prohibitive amount of money. That’s why we offer $1,500 to the person who shows true dedication to their community.
