Welcoming Kids' Chance - Providing Scholarships to Children of Injured Workers
#1
We are pleased to be partnering with Kids' Chance of America, an organization formed by professionals on both sides of workers' comp to provide educational assistance to children of people injured or killed on the job. It is a great organization, and in an adversarial world such as workers' comp, one of the few areas where all sides come together and agree on an important cause.

I encourage you to click on the banner ad above to visit their website and learn what they are all about. Their interest in us is our access to injured workers - they have a shortage of applicants in some areas, and want to get the word out about their program.

The state organizations that work with the national group have already awarded $5,000,000 in scholarships to kids in need.

Help us spread the word, and please pursue this for your own children if needed.

Thanks.

Good article in support of your organization "Kid's Chance" written by CA applicant attorney Julius Young on workcompzone.
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.

Does anyone know when the scholarship deadline is? I have tried to contact them but have not received a reply yet. SC is the state.
Thanks!

Dear WorkersCompensation.com" I REALLY enjoyed seeing Kids Chance receive a Comp Laude award yesterday for their efforts to help children of injured workers.

Congratulations!

We applied for our son and he was awarded a very nice scholarship for this semester. We are so grateful and glad that this info was available on here.
It sure helps takes some of the stress off of him and us trying to pay for school when I have been off work for over a year and unable to help him pay for school as we had planned previously before my injury. Without this scholarship, he would not have been able to continue at school.
Thanks again for posting this great opportunity.

Thank you for telling us that, Scooter, and congratulations! We love Kids' Chance, and are happy to help wherever possible.
