Kaire & Heffernan Community Scholarships for Florida Students

Miami Injury Lawyers Offer Scholarship for Florida High School Seniors

Kaire & Heffernan, LLC is proud to offer a very special scholarship opportunity to students in The Sunshine State.

The Kaire & Heffernan, LLC Community Scholarship for Florida High School students is available to promising young students in the state of Florida whose involvement in their communities reflects the values that we cherish at Kaire & Heffernan, LLC.

Through this opportunity, we hope to recognize a student who is actively engaged in trying to make the world a better, safer, and more charitable place. In particular, the scholarship will be awarded to a student with a history of volunteering for non-profit organizations in their community.

As an added bonus to the scholarship winner’s dedication, Kaire & Heffernan will be donating $500 to the Non-profit where they spent time volunteering.

As attorneys, we understand that community service is no mere gesture. On the contrary, it has a real and measurable impact on our neighbors, loved ones, and friends.

Our business is predicated on helping other people. From auto accident and medical malpractice victims, to the parents of children who have suffered catastrophic injuries. We spend our days pursuing justice.

We see first hand the real price of careless behavior, and we believe that young people can make a valuable contribution to the safety and wellness of their communities.

We also recognize the very high costs of higher education in this country. Having benefited from higher education ourselves, we hope to see more bright students enjoy access to all that America’s places of learning have to offer.

Ultimately, we hope to inspire young Floridians and Americans to invest themselves in the outside world and, perhaps, even consider the practice of law as their own professional endeavor.

  • A check in the amount of $1,000.00, made payable to the recipient’s chosen educational institution, to be used solely for the purposes of tuition and related expenses
