metamora herald gavel and books

I was contacted by Staver Law Group about helping them to promote their $5,000 scholarship program they have had for nearly four years now. So far they have been able to help out three students, and are looking forward to helping the fourth. Now if you have ever had to pay for college or had to pay for your child to attend you know that five thousand dollars can make a difference. I was more than happy to accommodate such a wonderful thing for our future generations education. Here is my interview with John Staver:

(Q-1) When did scholarship program begin?
This is the fourth year that Staver Law Group has offered the scholarship.

(Q-2) What made Mr. Staver start the program? Defining moment?
"At Staver Law Group, we are in the business of helping people - specifically those that have been injured - keep up with medical bills and their daily lives.  We created the scholarship program to extend that help to college students keep up with the financial strains that can come with university life." - Jared Staver

(Q-3) How many student have you helped so far?
We have helped three students in the last three years and will help a fourth this year.

(Q-4) Do students have to work/intern for you?
No, there is no work/intern requirement.

(Q-5) What is your hope for this program? For yourself and students alike.
"As a personal injury law firm, we are committed to helping our clients navigate their difficult situations and our hope is that we can help college students also navigate the challenges of paying for college.  Our hope is to alleviate that strain so they can focus on the most important goal of college - getting a good education.  "

[1] While academic scholarships are key in financing an education, students and their families are rarely aware of the generous scholarships being offered. Staver Law Group, a Chicago personal injury law firm, is offering to award a $5,000 scholarship to a student whose essay shows an understanding and appreciation for the type of work we do. As part of the process, applicants will be asked to submit an essay exploring how personal injury lawyers play a role leading safety initiatives by helping those injured and how he or she as an individual can promote personal and community safety into his or her everyday life.  Applications are due December 1.

Any U.S. citizen/permanent resident accepted/enrolled in an accredited college/university that has a 3.0 GPA or higher is eligible to apply. For more information and questions, email to apply for the Staver Law Group Scholarship. Thank you Staver Law Group for thinking of us.
