Chicago, IL – The winner of the 2016 Baizer Kolar P.C Personal Injury Scholarship has been announced. The winner is Katelyn Murwin. Katelyn has announced plans to begin attending law school starting in the Fall of 2016. Although a victim of medical negligence herself, this has not prevented Katelyn from pursuing her dream of working as a personal injury lawyer. The award is in recognition of the work ethic and perseverance she exhibited while recovering.
In the words of Bob Baizer, who is a personal injury attorney at Baizer Kolar P.C., “We award this scholarship only once each year. We award it to a deserving student who is about to enter college or is currently enrolled in a graduate school or college. The scholarship is worth $1,000, and the student who wins it is free to use the money on fees, books, housing or tuition. We evaluated our candidates this year and felt Katelyn Murwin was a deserving winner.”
The fact that Katelyn is the 2016 winner proves that she meets the requirements fully. After all, a student whose cumulative grade point is less than 3.0 never qualifies to receive this award; this shows that she has worked hard despite the hurdles she has encountered. The fact that she was involved in an injury that could have forced her to abandon her studies yet persevered to pursue and attain her dream of qualifying as a personal injury attorney also worked to Katelyn’s favor.
The winners are never chosen randomly. They must apply for consideration by sending an essay of 500-600 words. The essay must be on the impact that an accident had on the applicant’s life. A transcript from the applicant’s current institution of learning must accompany the application form that a student completes. The award given by Baizer Kolar P.C. is meant to acknowledge the hardships students go through to complete college education successfully.
A student who has not been the direct victim of an accident, but witnessed and was financially affected by another person’s accident is also eligible to apply. Such an applicant stands a good chance, just like all the rest, of winning the award to cater for college-related expenses. In all these cases, proof of the accident and its effect on the applicant’s life are mandatory for the applicant to be considered.
