Recovering from an injury after an accident can be long and difficult. At Bence Law, we fight to compensate those wrongly injured in an accident. That’s why we understand and emphasize the struggles of injury recovery. Overcoming these challenges takes the victim’s high level of determination and courage. That is why we are proud to bring back our Sport Injury Scholarship for another year.
We are looking for incoming college students or graduates who have overcome a physical injury for this scholarship. In 750-1000 words, tell us about when you were injured during a physical or other recreational activity and how you overcame that injury. The deadline is February 28, 2024. One student will receive an award of $1,000.
- The scholarship is open to any current high school senior, vocational student, college student, or graduate student who is a legal resident of the United States residing in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia and who is enrolled in a vocational program or two to a five-year post-secondary institution for the Fall 2024 semester.

- The candidate must submit a 750-1000 word essay response to the prompt: The purpose of sports and other recreational activities is to have fun and to live a healthier lifestyle.
