The law firm of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene dedicates a large part of our practice to helping families who have faced child abuse in any form. We know that many future lawyers also hope to champion this cause, and we are pleased to offer a semi-annual $1,000 scholarship for a child advocate or abuse survivor seeking a law degree.
We believe that attorneys stand in a unique place to be able to help families and individual victims of child abuse.

These are the essential tools to protecting children and helping them manage and move past trauma as they grow.
The Steinger, Iscoe & Greene Law Scholarship for Child Advocates is open to dedicated students who meet either of the following criteria:
You have personally worked to protect children's rights or stop abuse either as a volunteer, as a counselor, in your professional work or by legal means.

Chicago Injury Center believes in helping those who have courageously served our country. Education has the ability to give those who have suffered a physical or emotional injury the ability to gain access to a society that they may be ordinarily shut off from without a sufficient education.
Having a degree or certification not only provides a wounded warrior with the self-esteem that they may have lost with their injury, but also provides them with the ability to provide for themselves and their family. When a vet can focus on his or her studies as opposed to struggling to juggle the expenses associated with an education, their chances for success are greatly increased.
Chicago Injury Center (CIC) is proud to offer a series of scholarships available to disabled veterans enrolled in: community college, under-graduate, or graduate course of study. This CIC scholarship program will award scholarships in the amounts of $1,000 (1), $500 (1) and $250 (2). These scholarships will be available annually and will follow the deadlines and other requirements stated below.
The Scholarship Application Process
To apply for a scholarship from CIC, write a 500+ word essay on the hurdles you have had to overcome as a veteran with a disability and how it has prepared you to face the challenges of your particular course of study. How do you believe the military and your road to recovery has helped prepare you for the challenges that you will face as a student?
A team at CIC will review the submitted essays and determine the top four submissions. The committee will then vote to determine the scholarship awards.
The scholarship may be used to cover school-related expenses, such as tuition fees, registration costs, supplies and books.
