The David Law Firm of South Carolina Establishes Diabetes Scholarship
The David Law Firm of Conway, South Carolina has created a new juvenile (Type 1) diabetes scholarship. “The Davids’ Diabetes Scholarship” will be a $5,000 annual donation from the law firm, awarded to a South Carolina resident with juvenile diabetes, entering as a freshman to their college of 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 scholarship through the Diabetes Scholars Foundation, who will process the applications and ultimately choose the recipient. “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 Scholarship will begin taking applications in January 2013. Applications must be submitted by May 15, 2013 and the recipient will be announced the first week in June. Attorney David will present the scholarship to the recipient once chosen.
