Overcoming Disability Scholarship

The Law Offices of Coats & Todd is pleased to announce the first-ever winner of its Overcoming Disability Scholarship. Shelby Rose Benzing has been awarded $2,500 to put towards educational expenses. As a disability law firm, The Law Offices of Coats & Todd is intimately familiar with the struggles of disabled individuals in its community. The firm is entirely dedicated to helping people with disabilities obtain the assistance they need to meet their needs. Now, the firm seeks to help students who have overcome a disability to attend college.

Shelby will begin attending the University of Nevada Reno after graduating high school this spring. She plans to pursue a degree in graphic design while she continues to manage her cerebral palsy. The attorneys were impressed with the resilience and upbeat attitude she demonstrated in her video essay submission. While Shelby has struggled with her cerebral palsy, she has never let it stand in the way of her educational goals.

The scholarship is offered to students who will be attending college while managing a disability. Eligible students may apply by submitting a video responding to the prompt, “What would this scholarship mean for you, and how would it help you achieve your goals for the future? How do you think your disability has affected your life choices?” Applications are open through October 5, 2023.
