2024 Share the Road Scholarship

Scholarship

Congratulations to our 2023 scholarship recipient! Find out more about our previous winners here!

At Valero Law Group Injury Lawyers, we understand the physical, emotional, and financial impact that accidents can have on individuals and their families. As personal injury attorneys, we have dedicated our careers to fighting for the rights of accident victims and helping them recover the compensation they deserve.

To further our mission, we are proud to announce the 2024 Share the Road Scholarship, with a scholarship award of $1,000. The scholarship is open to all individuals who share our commitment to making our roads safer and reducing the number of accidents. The deadline for applying is September 30, 2024.

We are inviting applicants to share their thoughts on how we can work together to encourage good driving habits and reduce accidents. Whether it be through education, enforcement, or innovation, we want to hear your ideas on how we can make our roads safer for everyone, including pedestrians, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and other road users.

We believe that through this scholarship, we can help spread awareness about the importance of road safety and empower individuals to take action toward making our roads a safer place for everyone. If you or someone you know has been affected by a severe accident, the compensation you receive from a personal injury lawsuit can help cover the costs of medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.

If you’re interested in applying for the 2024 Share the Road Scholarship, please continue reading to learn more about eligibility and the application requirements. Together, let’s work towards creating a safer and more responsible road culture.
