Kids’ Chance scholarships fund college tuition or technical training to young people whose parent or parents have been permanently disabled or killed on the job. The death or disabling injury of a parent in an on-the-job accident usually means that a family’s standard of living is permanently lowered. Without help from Kids’ Chance, these young people might not have the opportunity to continue their education. Scholarships are announced once a year, and students may apply every year they attend classes. Scholarships range from $500 to $2500. Conceived by the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Alabama State Bar in 1992, Kids’ Chance is administered by the Alabama Law Foundation. Kids’ Chance scholarships are funded solely by contributions from corporations, organizations and individuals.
