At the law firm of Goldberg & Osborne we believe in achieving a higher education as much as we do in representing people who have been injured. We understand the importance that a sound education can make in the future of men and women. However, we also understand the difficulties of obtaining a degree due to the rising cost of tuition, books, and the necessities of life.
In order to help make a college education more of a feasible opportunity and to help spread awareness about distracted driving including texting and other cell phone activities such as social media, email and video chatting, we are offering a $1,000 scholarship to help current or soon-to-be college students manage higher education costs.
Mobile device use while operating a motor vehicle has been proven to result in injury, accidents, and even loss of life. Goldberg & Osborne feels strongly about the dangers of distracted driving because we have seen the consequences of this dangerous activity firsthand. For these reasons the National Goldberg & Osborne Don’t Text and Drive Scholarship was created with our only request that recipients pledge to never text and drive. If this can help save even one life, it is more than worth every effort that we can put forth.

We are a personal injury law firm with 21 offices spread across the state of Arizona strictly representing Plaintiffs or victims in a legal matter. These matters can range anywhere from car accident injuries to defective devices to mass torts. Learn more about our practice on the About Us page.

Are you really giving away the equivalent of $1,000 every other month?
We absolutely are! Our strong belief in spreading distracted driving awareness coupled with the pursuit of higher learning are causes we’re willing to stand behind with pride.
Why am I allowed to pledge once every other month? Isn’t one pledge not to text and drive enough?
We all live busy lives and easily forget things. Reinforcement is a powerful tool to keep ideas top of mind in our experience. That’s why we’re asking scholarship participants to pledge every other month regardless of whether they pledged before. The more you pledge, the more you’ll remember the message not to text and drive when the phone dings or rings while you’re at the wheel.
Can I win twice?
The odds of someone being randomly selected to win twice are relatively slim. However, in the unlikely event that did happen, we would select a different winner to be fair to all entrants and spread the joy of winning.
How do I know if I am eligible?
All scholarship awards during the 2016 year can be applied to either the fall 2016 or spring 2017 semesters. The applicant must be enrolled and attending a college or trade school in either of those semesters to be eligible.
High school seniors are eligible as long as they have accepted enrollment at a college or trade school; however, we cannot distribute the scholarship money until a student ID number has been secured.
What if I haven’t decided what college or trade school I am attending in the upcoming semester?
In the event the applicant has been accepted at multiple colleges or trade schools for the upcoming semester but hasn’t chosen one, simply type “undecided” in the college field on the entry form above. We will then work with the winner to get all the necessary information for the award disbursement once the college or trade school is chosen.
Can I enroll if I do not live in the United States?
For logistical and practical reasons, this scholarship is limited to residents attending a college or trade school located within the United States.
How will the scholarship money be awarded?
After contacting the winner, we will arrange for the scholarship money to be sent directly to the financial aid office of the winner’s school. Let us worry about ensuring the scholarship is applied while the applicants focus on their studies.
Will you change this scholarship again in the future or know when it will end?
To quote a certain famous movie, “the future is not set.” We are always brainstorming new ways to improve this scholarship.
We reserve the right to either continue or terminate this program in our sole discretion.
I absolutely love this cause. How can I help?
We’re flattered! You can help spread distracted driving awareness in any number of ways. Share this page on Facebook, Twitter or other social media platforms. Tell your friends and parents about it. Most importantly, be passionate about something you strongly believe in.
