Texting and Driving Prevention Scholarship
Scholarship Sponsored by Emerson Straw Injury Law
We are excited to announce that we will be offering the 2020 Texting and Driving Prevention Scholarship again this year! 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, we are asking applicants to discuss the ways in which they prevent themselves and others from texting and driving. In addition to discussing their personal relationship with this issue, we want you to 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 2020 Texting and Driving Prevention scholarship, students need to 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?
