Designated for a law student in a wheelchair, the new Wheelchair Disability Scholarship can be used for higher education tuition and expenses at any law school in the United States.

"At the Bell Law Group, we have seen first-hand how limited mobility can be a major challenge in workplaces and academic settings, so we created this scholarship to help raise awareness about mobility issues and to help educate both employers and employees on the importance of reasonable accommodations," said Jonathan Bell, Bell Law Group. "As litigators, we understand the fears and challenges men and women in wheelchairs face every day. We wanted to offer support, awareness and recognition while helping a future leading lawyer."

  • Applicants for the scholarship must be currently enrolled at or accepted to a U.S. law school and permanently confined to a wheelchair.
  • The application process involves a short personal essay exploring mobility issues as well as a short information form.
  • Applications are due Jan. 31, 2015 and the award recipient will be notified around March 1.
  • Completed application materials can be mailed to Jonathan Bell, 100 Quentin Roosevelt Blvd. #208, Garden City, New York 11530.

"From employee rights to disability rights, the Bell Law Group is dedicated to our clients and the next generation. We are thrilled to be able to support one law student's education and dreams," Bell added.
