College Scholarship

Each year, the Lamber-Goodnow Injury Law Team awards two scholarships to innovative and highly creative high school and college students. We seek essay submissions from students who are creative thinkers and problem solvers. Whether you are a star in your local community, an aspiring leader, a tech whiz, an engineer or a creative writer, we want to hear from you.

Creative thought, motivation and execution are important to us. Innovation is just as important in the legal process as it is in the rest of life. To make progress and improve upon our circumstances and surroundings, we must be willing to take risks that can influence and drive positive change. We want to support students who buck the trend, think outside of the box and deliver on this concept in everyday life and in school.

Law School Scholarship

Quality legal representation can have a meaningful impact on people’s lives. On a large scale, judicial decisions that are made impact society at large. On a smaller but no less important scale, individual cases can help to right wrongs. Our justice system is a great one, but to remain great and to improve, it needs quality people in it.

The personal injury lawyers on the Lamber-Goodnow team want to see the best and most qualified individuals enter the legal profession regardless of economic circumstances. To help this cause, we created a law school scholarship.

Physical Therapist / Occupational Therapist Scholarship

Physical therapists and occupational therapists have one of the most important responsibilities in the healthcare industry: going through the day-to-day efforts of helping people rehabilitate and get back into life.

This work can be challenging on many levels. The specific exercises and programs themselves must be executed properly. Equally if not more important, however, is that physical and occupational therapists must be motivators for their patients. This rare combination is hard to find. When it happens, patients improve and their lives get better.  We hear this time and again from our clients. This is why we want to see the highest-caliber people who are passionate about health care entering the field.

Your essay:

  • Submit a 500- to 750-word essay to scholarship@lambergoodnow.com by or on December 1.
  • Tell us what drives you and why you want to pursue a career as a physical therapist or occupational therapist.
  • We will choose finalists whose essays may be posted on our website and voted on via social media likes, shares, tweets and +1s. While this may have some influence on the eventual winning essays, it is not the sole basis of our final decisions.
