Boling Rice $1000 Scholarship

April 22, 2016 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

Demonstrating our commitment to the next generation of students

At the Atlanta law firm of Boling Rice, LLC, our attorneys understand the value of education as well as the often significant costs associated with obtaining one.  As attorneys, we are well aware of the financial strain that tuition, books, parking, and other educational expenses can put on both students and families. We value helping people who show promise and initiative, and for this purpose are pleased to be offering a $1,000 yearly scholarship to help students meet their financial needs. In order to qualify for this scholarship, an applicant must be either a current or incoming college student, and must participate in our essay competition on the legal topic detailed below.

Essay Topic

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), coercion occurs when a motor carrier, shipper, receiver, or transportation intermediary threatens to withhold work from, take employment action against, or punish a driver for refusing to operate in violation of hours-of-service and other safety regulations including certain provisions of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs), Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs) and the Federal Motor Carrier Commercial Regulations (FMCCRs).  An example of coercion occurs when a motor carrier terminates a driver for refusing to accept a load that would require the driver to violate the hours of service (HOS) requirements.

To address the problem of coercion, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration adopted the Prohibiting Coercion of Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers, known as the Coercion Rule which took effect on January 29, 2016.  The Rule allows drivers to report incidents of coercion to the FMCSA and authorizes the administration to issue penalties against motor carriers, shippers, receivers, or transportation intermediaries.

Does economic pressure in the motor carrier industry affect commercial drivers in such a way that it creates a negative impact on safety?  Why or why not?  Will the Coercion Rule have a greater impact on the economic side of the commercial trucking industry or safety?  Describe your answer.

Application Process

Details on the application process are as follows:

    • Essays must be responsive to the question posed above
    • Essays should be received by December 31, 2016.
    • Applications should be emailed to: bolingricelaw@gmail.com
    • Applicants must include their name, address, and the name of the school they are attending or planning to attend


After the application period is closed, we will review all submissions and decide on a winner on or around December 31, 2016. We will notify the winner by email.

Van Sant’s Annual $1,000 Veterans’ Educational Scholarship

April 22, 2016 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

Requirements to be considered for scholarship:

  • Applicant must be a veteran of the US Armed Forces with an Honorable Discharge.
  • Send a copy of your military record (DD Form 214).
  • Send a copy of your student ID or other proof of college enrollment.
  • A 500-word essay outlining your experience in the military and your educational goals.

Please email the required documents to: davidvansantveteran@gmail.com

Why We Support America’s Veterans

Our nation’s veterans risk their lives and postpone their dreams for years, all in order to protect our freedoms, both within our borders and overseas. When they return home and exit the military, they should be welcomed with an outpouring of love, appreciation, and support. However, all too often, despite a number of government programs to assist them, many veterans return to find that there are still far too many barriers to re-enter civilian life in a healthy, successful way. Literally millions of veterans struggle with service-related disabilities, ranging from traumatic brain injuries and amputations to depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Others struggle with homelessness and substance abuse issues. Many strive to get an education, job training, and stability, but face financial hurdles along the way.

We truly hope that our new scholarship program will help raise awareness of veteran issues while helping one outstanding veteran accomplish his or her educational goals, whether they need financial help with tuition, educational supplies, or living expenses.
