Congratulations to our previous scholarship recipients! Find out more about our previous winners here!

Kogan & DiSalvo is excited to offer A Modern Citizen Scholarship to a worthy and enthusiastic student who is interested in learning about and taking action on challenges facing their community and the world.

In this day and age it is easier than ever to stay up to date on current events and news on a local, national, and global level. As attorneys invested in protecting people suffering from negligence and injury, we are also interested in the overall systems of law in this country and want to reward a student who takes an active role in solving these problems by awarding them with $1,000 to put toward their education.

In a 750-1,000 word essay explain what you think it means to be a modern citizen? There are so many ways for us to get involved in issues facing our community, country and world. What do you believe an active citizen looks like these days and how do you find yourself taking part in your community on a local, state or national level?
