Injured Workers Law Firm Scholarship 2019
$5000 Scholarship for Trade or Vocational Students

At the Injured Workers Law Firm, we believe in our community and in education. We understand the importance of giving back, which is why our firm is a proud sponsor of a number of charitable organizations throughout the Richmond area.

As Richmond workers compensation lawyers, we advocate for employees throughout Virginia who have been injured or developed an illness at work. We have seen firsthand the strength of Virginia workers, particularly those in the trades, and how they form the backbone of our economy.

According to firm founder Michele Lewane, “We know that there is a demand for highly skilled workers in the trades, particularly in Virginia. These workers bring so much value to our state, and help to ensure that our communities thrive.”  Across the nation, high-paying skilled trade jobs are unfilled, while many students with bachelor’s degrees are unable to find jobs.

For this reason, the Injured Workers Law Firm has decided to offer a $5,000 trade school scholarship. The scholarship is available to ALL VIRGINIA STUDENTS who have been accepted to an accredited vocational or trade school, and who meet the qualifications as described below.

Scholarship Rules

To apply for the Injured Workers Law Firm Scholarship 2019, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • U.S. citizen or authorized to work in the United States
  • Accepted and will be attending a two or four-year trade school in the fall of 2019
  • Academic achievement as reflected by an undergraduate or high school cumulative minimum 3.0 GPA
  • Resident of Virginia
  • OPEN TO ALL VIRGINIA STUDENTS

A full list of the scholarship eligibility requirements can be found here.

As an integral part of its commitment to provide highly skilled heavy equipment operators and stationary/facilities engineers to the construction, stationary and environmental industries, the International Union of Operating Engineers developed and implemented comprehensive training programs that are widely recognized as the best in those industries.

Department of Energy to administer and operate the nation’s foremost hazardous materials (HAZMAT) training program and the International Environmental Technology and Training Center , both located at the IUOE National Hazmat Project in Beckley, WV.

The IUOE also participates in the Job Corps program, a training program for young people, age 16 – 24.
