DESCRIPTION

ABC Law Centers Cerebral Palsy annual scholarship is for financial assistance designed to simultaneously increase awareness about cerebral palsy (CP) and celebrate the achievements of those with cerebral palsy. ABC Law Centers will award one scholarship per year in the amount of $1,000 to a student who has cerebral palsy.

The $1,000 check will be made payable to the school or program in which the applicant wishes to participate (in rare cases, we may choose to make the check out to the applicant directly – for example, if they have applied for living expenses associated with a particular program). Each year, they publish a feature piece on the winner; they ask that all scholarship winners allow them to publish their first and/or last name, university, and a picture. They also appreciate it if applicants allow them to publish their essay/creative project, although this is not mandatory.
