2023 Seize the Day Scholarship

At KMW Legal, we are dedicated to empowering our clients and helping them to make the most out of each day. Over the years, we have seen many families struggle to move forward after a tragic or traumatic accident. After experiencing something devastating, victims understandably might feel hopeless or unsure about how to move forward. This is why we have created the Seize the Day Scholarship. Life cannot and should not be taken for granted because a traumatic accident could happen at any time. Our commitment to this endeavor is unwavering, and we believe that the key to unlocking all of life’s opportunities lies within the daily routines, habits, and activities that shape our existence.

We know not every day can be an exciting adventure, jet-setting off to a new destination. For the average full-time student, things could feel quite dull or mundane. We'd like to hear from students on what keeps them going through difficult times and everyday routines. What hobbies, rituals, or passions do you incorporate to keep you excited and looking forward to the days ahead? Through this scholarship, we seek students to share how they make the most of each day.

This $1,000 scholarship award will be given to one eligible student. The deadline to apply is March 31, 2024. Continue reading below for details on the application process.
