Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano Accepting Scholarship Applications from Students with a Passion for Learning and Community

September 27, 2017

Announcement

Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano is currently accepting applications for the Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano General Annual Scholarship and the Bi-Annual Scholarship for Friends, Family & Colleagues of Injured Workers.

 

The Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano General Annual Scholarship provides a $1,000 grant to a student currently enrolled in or recently accepted to a higher education institution. Applicants must write an essay of no more than 1,000 words about one of three topics dealing with workers’ compensation or acts of service to their community as part of their application. Ms. Allison Perlin, a student at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, was awarded the 2017 Scholarship. Her essay advocating for mental healthcare reform was touching and demonstrative of her commitment to giving back.

 

The Bi-Annual Scholarship for Friends, Family & Colleagues of Injured Workers provides a $500 grant to a student with a personal connection to an incident that resulted in a work injury. They tell their story in an essay of no more than 500 words. Applicants also must submit two letters of recommendation from professional or academic sources. Ms. Kaitlin Miller, a student at Central Washington University in Des Moines, was awarded the Fall 2017 Bi-Annual Scholarship for Friends, Family & Colleagues of Injured Workers. Her story of the uncertainty experienced during a loved one’s work injury embodied the struggle so many Americans face within the workers’ compensation system.

 

Applications for the Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano General Annual Scholarship must be submitted by May 3, 2018. Applications for the spring semester for the Bi-Annual Scholarship for Friends, Family & Colleagues of Injured Workers are accepted from September 15th to December 15th. The firm sponsors multiple scholarships that are available to students who have a passion for learning and actively contribute to their community. For more information about these opportunities, and to access the application form and essay topics, visit the Scholarship page on the firm’s website.
