Katz & Phillips, P.A. is proud to support future lawyers with the launch of their first-ever Diabetes Law Student Scholarship Award, named in honor of founding partner David Katz’s daughter Ashley Rose Katz who was diagnosed with diabetes at 18 months of age, presented to one high-achieving, bright student intending to pursue a career in law in the United States. Our Orlando law firm will be sponsoring an annual scholarship for a law school student whose life has been impacted by diabetes. In recognition of the fact that diabetes often makes it more challenging to take on academic endeavors such as law school, we will set aside $1,000 to fund this scholarship, which is designed to assist eligible students with type I diabetes with their law school tuition.
– Applicant must be either a current law student at an accredited law school or a student entering law school (having already been accepted to an accredited law school) this year.
– Applicants must have a minimum 2.8 GPA.
Please answer BOTH questions provided for your essay. Essays must be between 500 and 1000 words.
Reflect on a moment where your experience with diabetes provided you with a unique perspective or insight in a challenging situation.
Discuss a policy or legal issue related to healthcare or disability rights that you are passionate about and explain how you plan to address it in your legal career.
