2022 True Impact of Injury Scholarship

Each day, Hess Law Office, PLLC, works with injury victims to help them receive compensation for their injuries from at-fault parties. From years of experience, we’ve seen that most people do not realize the components of a personal injury, from medical bills to the mental and emotional strain. Each personal injury accident has a different profound impact on victims. Some of these impacts stay with individuals and their families for years.

To help shed light on this issue, Hess Law Office PLLC is proud to announce the True Impact of Injury Scholarship. This is an opportunity for anyone who has suffered from an injury to explain the personal injury case’s complicated and individualized reality. Students are asked to describe their experiences with an injury (personal or loved ones) for this scholarship. Students should detail what short-term and long-term effects this injury had on you or your loved ones.

This is a $1,000 scholarship award for students to pursue their educational goals. The deadline to apply is September 30, 2022. Applications are open to all majors.
