Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. will be awarding three scholarships to students whose lives have been affected by a family member’s battle with cancer. We want to hear the stories from students that witnessed someone in the family: a parent, sibling, grandparents or cousins battling cancer.

Why are we offering the scholarship to students affected by cancer?

We are aware of how profoundly a cancer diagnosis affects the family dynamics and the emotional well being of each family member. Everything changes in a family when someone gets a cancer diagnosis. Parents have to quit jobs and focus on treatment and the family's income decreases drastically. Our goal is to support a student with a family connection to cancer continue his/her education. For this reason, we have decided to offer a little help to young people who witnessed a loved one’s devastating struggle with cancer in order to ease at least their financial situation.

Awarded Over $2.5 Million in Our Asbestos Scholarship Fund

Our asbestos scholarship fund was established over 50 years ago with the purpose of providing financial help to children and grandchildren of our clients whose asbestos litigation cases had been settled. Over 160 students receiving the asbestos scholarships have attended 47 colleges and universities, including Auburn University, University of Alabama, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, Stillman College, Spelman College, and University of Alabama at Birmingham(UAB). In 2005 we extended the eligibility requirements to include all students who have a family member diagnosed with cancer.
