Disabled Students Pursuing a Career in Law Scholarship

We are proud to support students with disabilities by offering a $1,000 scholarship specifically for disabled students pursuing a law career. This scholarship can be applied to any institution of your choice, and will provide an extra boost for students with disabilities who are preparing to transition into academics, and eventually into a career in law.

Friedl Richardson has become one of the best personal injury law firms in Arizona through years of hard work, and believes that overcoming personal challenges can be a wonderful preparation for pursuing a career in law. We acknowledge that working through the complications that a disability presents can be very challenging, and we applaud the determination of students with disabilities who are interested in studying law.

Earning a law degree can be a challenging path, one that tests the limits of many students’ endurance. We believe that students who have already faced major challenges head on are often better equipped to deal with the rigor of earning a law degree. We would like to offer this opportunity to help support students with disabilities who have made the decision to pursue a law career, since we believe that making this choice is a clear indication of a willingness to work hard and persevere, which are both vital qualities for any successful law career.

We offer the opportunity to write an essay or record a video explaining why you are an excellent candidate for this scholarship. We look forward to hearing about your story and your strengths. What challenges have you already overcome that have led you pursue a career in the legal field? What are you looking to achieve by pursuing a career in law? We look forward to hearing from you, and hope we can give back to our community by offering support for your academic and professional pursuits.
