As an attorney, Chicago criminal defense lawyer Nenye Uche understands the value of higher education. In order to become a licensed attorney in Illinois and most other states, a person is required to have an undergraduate degree as well as a Juris Doctorate, which normally requires at least 7 years of post-high school education. In addition to this significant investment of time and effort, obtaining a post-secondary education also often requires a significant investment of financial resources as well. College tuition rates have skyrocketed over the past few decades, putting a significant financial strain on many college students and their families. In an effort to help students meet their financial needs, Mr. Uche’s law firm is offering a $1,000 annual scholarship to an incoming or current college student. Information about applying for this scholarship is provided below.
Scholarship essay contest and topic
The scholarship will be awarded to the winner of an essay contest. In order to apply, applicants should write a 500-word essay on the following topic:
The past few years have seen several states take a much more tolerant approach towards marijuana regulation. Notably, Colorado and Washington State have gone so far as to legalize the recreational use of the drug for people over 21. Illinois legalized medical marijuana last year, and there is currently pending legislation that would decriminalize marijuana possession and another bill that would fully legalize marijuana for individuals over 21. One of the major concerns raised by marijuana critics is that legalized pot would increase the incidence of impaired driving. Do you believe that legalizing marijuana would result in more impaired drivers, and, if so, what steps could lawmakers take to discourage people from driving after using marijuana?
The essays should be submitted as an attachment in either Microsoft Word Document or Adobe PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 14th, 2015. The submissions will be judged based on the following criteria:
Mr. Uche will personally review the submissions and notify the winner by email on or around August 14th, 2015.
In order to apply for the scholarship, applicants must be planning on attending an accredited United States college or university in the fall 2015 semester. In addition, the following information should be included in the body of the email to which the essay is attached:

Time doesn't heal all wounds. For the disabled, the journey becomes one of accommodation to a new reality. Adapting to a lifestyle they never envisioned. Beside them on this journey are the teachers and healers.
Our firm is pleased to announce a $3,000 scholarship for those seeking education in a field related to the care of the injured and disabled. We know how valuable their skills are. Our clients tell us, and we see the results" the support and comfort these caregivers provide, long after the case is won.
Students in any accredited program of higher education which services the injured or disabled are eligible. It's for those pursuing a career in massage therapy, physical therapy, chiropractic, audiology and other healing arts. All we ask is that applicants tell us their story - why they chose to help those with physical ailments.
The application details can be found on the link above.
Students may already be enrolled or just starting out. Candidates will be required to document acceptance or current enrollment in a recognized program, either for a degree or certification (two-year, four-year or trade school).
While our firm can reach a full and fair settlement in negligence injury cases, it takes another type of gift to transition someone from the devastation of physical injury to regaining control of their lives. There's a real bond formed between a caregiver and patient. The injured look to us for financial remedies, but after the case, they still face struggles. It takes real time and effort to get back a sense of purpose and to feel productive once again. Those who assist in this have our greatest admiration.
The Center for Disease Control reports that about 20% of Americans have some disability. That's a huge number, and the support services needed to meet this demand are incredible. Difficulties with mobility and impaired vision are most common, but any physical damage has the potential to permanently alter function. For many, the daily tasks we take for granted are severely limiting, affecting employment opportunities and the ability to enjoy their lives.
Sadly, the support systems in place are sometimes deficient. We often battle on clients' behalf to get the benefits they deserve, whether it’s from Social Security, workers’ compensation, or other party. The landscape is a rough one, filled with traps for the unwary. Where the support systems are not deficient, however, is when a caring professional steps in to aid recovery or offer long-term assistance. For this reason, we hope our scholarship promotes and sustains someone’s dream to become the unsung hero; the hero who pushes someone to take just one more step; the voice of encouragement when all seems hopeless; the teacher and the guide.
If you know someone who is pursuing a career in helping the disabled, please pass this scholarship announcement on to them. The requirements are very few. This is intentional so as not to limit applicants by geography, school, or career path. We'd very much like to hear their story.
