Living With Epilepsy Scholarship
Application Link: https://kaplunmarx.com/2021-living-with-epilepsy-scholarship/
The personal injury attorneys at KaplunMarx are thrilled to launch the first year of our Living with Epilepsy Scholarship. We want to support those whose lives are affected by epilepsy and help spread awareness about this disease. It’s important to further the conversation around epilepsy and get involved in supporting those whose lives are impacted. The fight against epilepsy is something everyone at our firm cares very deeply about. Like many families, Jon Marx, a founding partner of our law firm, deals with the epilepsy of a loved one on a daily basis. Seeing this disease first hand motivates us to continue working towards a cure. This is why our team at KaplunMarx want to give back to the epilepsy warriors out there.
This $1,000 scholarship is available to a student who has been diagnosed or whose family member, friend, or other individual they are close to has been diagnosed with epilepsy or another seizure disorder. We want to hear how your diagnosis has affected your life, whether that is having the responsibility to care for someone with epilepsy or how you’ve had to learn to take care of yourself. Have there been instances where the disease has pushed you to succeed rather than hindered you? What obstacles have you overcome? Are there any important moments in your life that have occured because of your diagnosis? Tell us your story.
