Personal Injury Scholarship

Rasmussen & Miner is proud to be an established law firm providing essential legal support to accident victims throughout the Salt Lake City area. We have seen countless accident victims overcome the enormous hurdles that often accompany a personal injury. We strive to provide victims with trustworthy legal counsel that will help them regain control of their lives, but we also understand that the consequences of such a tragedy can extend for years after the event itself.

As a small law firm that is dedicated to investing in the future of our community, we would like to offer a scholarship opportunity to students who have been directly impacted by a severe personal injury in the past.

We are proud to offer a $500 scholarship to one student who shows exemplary dedication to their education in spite of their setbacks.
