A scholarship program that provides assistance to children of Louisiana workers who died or were permanently disabled in an accident accepts scholarship applications for the year 2022-2023.
From now until February 11, 2022, eligible children between the ages of 16 and 25 can apply to the Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF) Children’s Scholarship.
To be eligible, you must meet the following requirements:
- Must be a dependent of a worker who has been killed or rendered permanently and completely disabled in an accident that is compensable under a federal or state workers compensation act or law.
- Must be a Louisiana resident between the ages of 16 and 25.
- An average of “C” or higher must be maintained.
- Significant financial need must be demonstrated.
- Must have a college or elementary school degree (bachelor’s or associate’s) or vocational education and training (certificate or license) from an accredited Louisiana
A state-accredited university, community, technical or vocational college, and/or royal school.
* There may be an exception for attendance at an accredited institution from outside the country for unusual reasons.
Each year, one in 50 Louisiana workers will be injured on the job, they say, and they can be compensated under federal or state workers’ compensation law or law. Some of these work accidents will result in death or permanent and complete disability. The families of these individuals will face difficult challenges as they struggle to overcome the financial burden of these losses. The LBF Kids’ Chance Scholarship, according to their website, can help by providing the scholarship for their education after high school.
