2024 Combating Campus Issues Scholarship

2024 Combating Campus Issues Scholarship

The New York injury law firm, Goldstein and Bashner, has established itself as an advocate for the rights of students who experience harm caused by the negligence or intentional acts of others.

The attorneys of the firm are committed to tirelessly advocating for such individuals to receive fair treatment, compensation, and accountability under the law.

A particular area of interest to our legal team is eradicating the multitude of issues that students face on university campuses across the United States. Whether it is hazing, bullying, Title IX issues, or sexual assault, the attorneys at Goldstein and Bashner are committed to the fight against these wrongs.

To that end, we are pleased to announce the renewal of our Combating Campus Issues Scholarship.

Each year, we present a $1,000 award to an especially promising higher education student who shares our determination and articulates a clear vision about how they will work to advance advocacy initiatives and solutions for on-campus problems.

Congratulations to our scholarship winners! Find out more about our previous recipients here!
