The Law Offices of David A. Black has announced the establishment of a scholarship for disabled veterans. This is a scholarship that will assist in the payment of tuition to the educational institution chosen by the successful applicant.
The men and woman who have served in the United States military deserve our respect and admiration. And when their service is completed, readjustment to civilian life can be difficult. For those who are disabled, there are additional challenges. At the Law Offices of David A. Black, we believe that for some disabled veterans, the continuation of their education will help them to meet those challenges. Our purpose in offering the scholarship is to provide financial assistance and thereby help the veteran to achieve his or her educational goals.
The Disabled Veteran Scholarship
The scholarship is in the form of tuition assistance at a college or university, junior college, trade school or vocational school. Applicants need not be enrolled at an educational institution at the time they submit their application, but the scholarship must be utilized within one year from the date of the award. The scholarship funds will be paid directly to the school to defray a portion of the tuition cost.
Who is Eligible to Apply?
In order to be considered for the scholarship, you must be a veteran of the United States Armed Forces and have a 30% or higher disability rating.
Your completed online application, together with all uploads, is due no later than January 15, 2018.

- Upload a short statement (not more than 100 words) telling us what your educational goals are.
