Auger & Auger Scholarship Benefits Disabled Students

profile_herbLaw firm offers $1,000 to undergraduates with disabilities

CHARLOTTE, NC – Auger & Auger announced a new scholarship for disabled students today. The firm says the scholarship is intended to help level the playing field for students with physical or mental disabilities.

Auger & Auger founder Herb Auger says that the scholarship for $1,000 is open to both current undergraduates and high school students that have been accepted to a college.

“This is a group of students that historically faces numerous obstacles,” Auger said. “Our colleges and universities are required to be accessible to disabled students, but that doesn’t eliminate the many social and financial barriers they experience.”

Auger says the scholarship is one way of lowering those barriers.

“By assisting with tuition and other expenses, our hope at Auger & Auger is that high-achieving disabled students won’t be held back by financial worries.”

As a personal injury law firm, Auger & Auger frequently works with accident victims who will cope with disabilities for the rest of their lives. Auger says that has given his lawyers and staff a strong sense of empathy for the difficulties that disabled persons face.

“Some people are born with a disability and others are left with one after a terrible injury or accident,” he said. “No matter what the cause, disabled Americans are often viewed differently. Most people cannot understand the pressures they go through every day.”

Auger says the scholarship won’t eliminate those pressures but could help deserving students overcome them.

“Our hope is that this will help someone complete their education and achieve their dream. And that shows the world that a disability doesn’t have to hold you back.”

The Auger & Auger Disabled Scholar Award will be awarded twice a year. Application details can be found online.
