Semi-Annual College $1000 Scholarship

The social security disability attorneys at Chermol & Fishman are pleased to inform you that they will be hosting a semi-annual college scholarship opportunity for a one-time scholarship award of $1000. The recipient of this scholarship will be decided through an essay contest which will be held twice a year. The contest will be open to anyone who is currently enrolled (or will be enrolled) in an accredited U.S. college or university for the academic year 2021-2022. The applicant pool is not limited to undergraduates and will be open to community college and graduate students as well.

The primary purpose of the scholarship is to finance the recipient’s purchase of required supplies and materials, such as textbooks, writing materials, or even a personal computer for the need for education. Firm co-founder David Chermol stated in his statement that they are proud to be directly supporting the educational journey of the next generation. Their attorneys understand how difficult financing higher education can be, and want to do their part to make those aspirations a reality. The winner of the scholarship will be reached out via email and phone call. In case, there is no response from the side of the winner within seven days, the winner will forfeit their prize and the scholarship will be awarded to someone else. Those who are not selected to receive the scholarship are highly encouraged to reapply the following semester. Winners are also allowed and encouraged to reapply in subsequent semesters.

As a firm, Chermol and Fisherman handle Social Security disability and supplemental security income (SSI) claims at every administrative level for people throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and the Delaware Tri-state area. Their federal appeals practice is nationwide and is primarily based on referrals from other Social Security disability law firms. It tells you a lot about the quality of representation that they offer when other law firms come for representation in complex disability cases.
