Transitioning from high school to college can be overwhelming for any student. Having represented injured children for more than three decades ,  many of whom have lifetime special needs – the medical malpractice and personal injury lawyers of Bottar Law, PLLC know, first-hand, that the transition for a student with a physical or learning disability is often more difficult.
In the collegiate environment, a student with a physical or learning disability must make a number of difficult and complicated decisions, including whether to e.g., disclose the specifics of his/her disability, request special accommodations in the classroom, or request other types of campus assistance. In addition, paying for college can provide different challenges, as students with physical or learning disabilities may need to purchase special equipment or hire private tutors to facilitate their collegiate learning experience. Typically, students with disabilities do not receive special financial aid consideration from the federal government.

Through the Bottar Law, PLLC Scholarship, we hope to reduce barriers to education for students with physical or learning disabilities by providing additional financial security as they pursue their studies in college.
