Accident Injury Scholarship


Dirk Derrick Car & Truck Accident Injury Scholarship



The $1,000 Dirk Derrick Car & Truck Accident Injury Scholarship is an award for any current or soon-to-be undergrad in the United States who has had his or her life altered due to an injury from a car or truck accident, be it their own injury, that of a loved one, or an influential individual.

The Dirk Derrick Scholarship has a brief submission process, and applicants will be judged on their ability to convey the lasting effect an auto accident has had on their life as well as their journey to overcome those challenges.

Students applying must submit an essay where you explain as to why you deserve to win this scholarship. There are no conditions or requirements for this essay.

Please keep submissions to 5 paragraphs and 600 words at the absolute maximum. While spelling, punctuation, and general cohesiveness will make your essay easier to read, and therefore judge, you are not being graded. The winning submission will be one which clearly conveys a non-fictional story of your life before and after an auto accident.

The deadline to apply for this scholarship is December 15th of each year. Winners will be announced on December 20th of each year.
