    Urban & Taylor, S.C. Scholarship

    Urban & Taylor, S.C., $1,000 Scholarship

    Urban & Taylor, S.C., a personal injury law practice based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is proud to announce that we are now offering a twice-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 or spring semester. We recognize the struggles many students face financially and believe that by helping college students achieve their dreams, we can help create a brighter tomorrow.

    The current open submission period is for Fall 2017.

    To apply for the scholarship, you’ll need to submit a 500+ word essay on the topic below as well as provide us with some additional information.

    Scholarship Guidelines

    • Students can be attending or planning to attend any college or graduate school in the U.S.
    • 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.
    • This current scholarship will be rewarded for the semester beginning in Fall 2017.
    • All applications for the current semester are due by August 1, 2017.

    Essay Topic

    You’ll need to submit a 500+ word essay on the following topic:

    How can we, as a society, encourage drivers to prioritize safety when behind the wheel?

    Car accidents, truck accidents, and other types of motorized vehicle accidents are all too common on U.S. highways. We all know someone who has been in a serious car crash or have experienced a devastating wreck ourselves. Traffic laws, posted signs, and highway officials do a fair job of encouraging drivers to follow the rules of traffic and keep themselves and others safe, but every day we see drivers breaking laws and taking lives into their own hands. How can we, as a society, better stress the importance of driving safely and ensure we all do our part to avoid accidents?

    Once the application period closes, Urban & Taylor will choose a winner based on the feasibility and creativity of each essay as well as the applicant’s level of knowledge in the topic and the student’s ability to create a well-crafted essay. You don’t need to be pursuing an English degree or law degree to write the winning essay. The winning essay will be one that explores the topic in a unique way– one that ideally brings new insight to the topic.

    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 1-2 of the top contenders at our discretion. Published essays may appear with minor edits.

    Application Instructions

    To submit your application, email us your completed essay, a digital copy of the acceptance letter from your college or graduate school verifying your first-year status, and some brief information about yourself to urbanandtaylorlaw@gmail.com.

    In the body of your email, please include your name, address, phone number, and the name of your current/planned school. You may include a brief paragraph telling us about yourself and your career-related goals, but this part should be brief. The essay should be attached as either a .DOC, .DOCX, .PDF, or .RTF, or included in the body of the email.
