Because an Accident Shouldn’t Get in the Way of Your Education
Pursuing a college education is a costly endeavor for most students, especially those who are coping with the financial fallout from a serious accident. At Rosen & Ohr, we believe that an accident should never get in the way of one’s education, and because of this, we are continuing the Rosen & Ohr Scholarship Program this year.
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Write an essay explaining in detail how a serious accident involving you, a family member, or a close friend has impacted your life. This could have been a car crash, a slip-and-fall accident, a work-related injury, or any other serious accident.
Explain how an injury from the accident has affected you or a loved one by:
- Limiting or restricting daily activities
- Affecting feelings and relationships
- Impacting finances
Your essay should be between 750 and 1,000 words. In your essay, you must include the name of the college you are applying to or are enrolled in and how you plan to finance your education (loans, grants, scholarships, work, etc.)
