Scholarship Sponsored by Emerson Straw Injury Law
This year, we are excited to announce The Texting and Driving Prevention Scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship opportunity aims to generate innovative and creative solutions to the age-old problem of distracted driving. In a 750-word essay, please discuss the ways in which you prevent yourself and others from texting and driving. In addition to discussing your personal relationship with this issue, please offer prevention tips and solutions for texting and driving to help increase the safety of drivers and pedestrians alike.
In order to be eligible for The Texting and Driving Prevention scholarship, students must meet the following requirements:
A) Currently enrolled or about to attend an accredited community college, undergraduate, or graduate program within the United States.
B) Have a minimum current GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
Please include the following documents:
A) Resume including contact information
B) Current academic transcript including a cumulative GPA. (First year students may submit unofficial transcripts from their accredited institution. If a student is not currently enrolled in an accredited university, we ask that the candidate provide proof of acceptance to their future college or university)
C) 750-word original essay: Discuss the ways that you personally prevent texting while driving as the laws in place are not 100% effective. What steps do you take that you feel others should be taking as well? How do you plan on spreading these ideas?
