Urban & Taylor, S.C., a personal injury law practice based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is proud to announce that we are offering a once-yearly $1,000 scholarship to students who are currently attending or plan to attend their first year of college or graduate school in the upcoming fall semester. We recognize the struggles many students face financially and believe that by helping college students achieve their dreams, we can help create a brighter tomorrow.
We first started the scholarship in Fall 2017 and were humbled by its success. We’ve decided to continue it for 2018 and going forward.
The current open submission period is for Fall 2018. Applications are due by Sunday, July 15 2018.
The next open submission period will be for Fall 2019.
To apply for the scholarship, you’ll need to submit a 500+ word essay on the topic below as well as provide us with some additional information.
- Students can be attending or planning to attend any college or graduate school in the U.S.
- All applicants must be attending or plan on attending for their first year.
- As proof of your first-year status, you will need to submit a digital copy of your acceptance letter—complete with the college letterhead—from that college.

Tell us about a time when you had to do the right thing/make the right decision even though it was difficult.
Once the application period closes, Urban & Taylor will choose a winner based on the feasibility and creativity of each essay as well as the applicant’s level of knowledge in the topic and the student’s ability to create a well-crafted essay. You don’t need to be pursuing an English degree or law degree to write the winning essay. The winning essay will be one that explores the topic in a unique way– one that ideally brings new insight to the topic.

In the body of your email, please include your name, address, phone number, and the name of your current/planned school. You may include a brief paragraph telling us about yourself and your career-related goals, but this part should be brief.
