The personal injury attorneys at O’Connor, Acciani & Levy are proud to offer the 2023 Accountability & Morality Scholarship! Everyone, even corporations, are accountable for their actions. Every action has an effect on the people and places involved. Whether it is something as small as an individual making a ‘just’ decision or as large as environmental impact, every action has its positive and negative effects.
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “it is wrong and immoral to seek to escape the consequences of one’s acts.” As individuals, this is easier said than done. We can control our actions and be held accountable for our mistakes. But what happens when corporations make mistakes, or a product has side effects that were unintended? Who is held accountable? Describe a time you had to be accountable for yourself or others. Consider positive or negative moments you experienced. How does your outlook and actions affect yourself and others?
Once all of the submissions have been received, the entries will be reviewed and the top five applicants will be selected to each receive a $1,000 award for their essays that describe a time when a corporation’s actions failed resulting in someone or a group of people being injured, and how the victims overcame their situation and held a specific party accountable.
Application Deadline and Instructions:
To be eligible for this scholarship, candidates must email their full application (including the essay, resumé, and transcript) to email@example.com by October 31st, 2023. Any applications sent after this date will not be considered.
