CHCI’s scholarship opportunities are afforded to Latino students in the United States who have a history of performing public service-oriented activities in their communities and who demonstrate a desire to continue their civic engagement in the future.

The mission of the Bottaro Law Firm is to be a beacon of light in helping injured people. We take our jobs very seriously and devote ourselves wholeheartedly to our clients. We enjoy being involved in our community to help prevent injuries while also helping others.
We know that having a college education can make a big difference in a person’s future success. Of course, it can be difficult to obtain a college degree due to the cost of living, along with tuition, books, and other necessities for college classes. At Bottaro Law, we want to help make someone’s college education a real opportunity, and therefore, we are offering a $1,000 scholarship to help a student enrolled in college.
Texting and Driving = Recipe for Disaster
At our firm, we have seen the tragedies that occur with the popularity of mobile devices among young people. Lives have been lost and others have suffered tremendous loss due to texting while driving. Because we feel so strongly about the dangers of texting and driving, we created this scholarship for two reasons: 1) to help a young person pay for college expenses and 2) to raise awareness of the dangers of texting while driving. We want to help save lives by continuing to spread the word about the seriousness of texting and driving.
Qualifications for Students
- Be enrolled at a college or university and planning to attend in the fall of 2015.
- Write an essay of at least 200 words stating how the scholarship can benefit you and your educational plans.
- Agree not to text and drive – this should be included in the essay.
- Include your full name, address, email, phone, and evidence demonstrating you meet the qualifications.
The Bottaro Law Firm’s “Don’t Text and Drive” scholarship will be offered to one student. The application deadline is May 1, 2015 and the scholarship will be awarded on June 1, 2015. The scholarship award will be in the amount of $1,000 and will be given directly to the student.
