The David Law Firm is excited to announce they are reinstating their juvenile (Type 1) diabetes scholarship, “The Davids’ Diabetes Scholarship.” In 2015, there will be 2 scholarships available, each being $1,000. The donations from the law firm will be awarded to South Carolina residents with juvenile diabetes, entering as freshmen to the college of their choice.
Attorney Byron David, a Type 1 diabetic himself, believes the scholarship will greatly benefit the recipient. “I know, personally, the hardships of having Type 1 diabetes. The insulin, needles, glucose testers, test strips and pills are very costly.” says David. “I am honored to be able to help someone starting a new life chapter. I hope to remind younger Type 1 diabetics that they are not alone and can still be successful, despite the disease. I am proud of them for pursuing higher education and feel blessed to be able to help.”
The David Law Firm established the scholarships through the Diabetes Scholars Foundation, who will process the applications and ultimately choose the recipients. “The Diabetes Scholars Foundation is a non-profit organization that creates a platform for funding scholarships for juvenile diabetics.” says David. “I trust their expertise and sophisticated systems in choosing a deserving recipient.”
The Davids’ Diabetes Scholarships will begin taking applications in January 2015. Deadlines for applications are not yet determined. Attorney David will present the scholarship to the recipients once chosen.
