Kids’ Chance Scholarship
Kids’ Chance Scholarships Give Help And Hope.
The death or disabling injury of a parent in an on-the-job accident usually means that a family’s standard of living is permanently lowered. Kids’ Chance scholarships fund college tuition or technical training to young people whose parent or parents have been permanently disabled or killed on the job. Without help from Kids’ Chance, these young people might not have the opportunity to continue their education.
Conceived by the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Alabama State Bar in 1992, Kids’ Chance is administered by the Alabama Law Foundation. Kids’ Chance scholarships are funded solely by contributions from corporations, organizations and individuals. To make the future secure for Kids’ Chance and to make larger scholarships available, the Alabama Law Foundation is building an endowment.
Scholarships are announced once a year, and students may apply every year they attend classes. Scholarships range from $500 to $2500. Kids’ Chance has awarded more than 100 scholarships totaling over $375,000 to students studying in colleges and technical schools. Almost 40 Kids’ Chance recipients have graduated, are working on master degrees, or are employed.
The benefits from Kids’ Chance scholarships go beyond improving individual students’ lives. Kids’ Chance graduates are working as lawyers, doctors, nurses, environmental scientists, teachers and counselors. Every day, Kids’ Chance graduates work to make their communities healthy, safe, fair, caring places to live.
Kids’ Chance scholarships certainly help with tuition costs, but they are more than money—they are an investment for a successful future—they are help and hope.
