For your issue, think locally, nationally, or even internationally. After taking the time to have a sincere, substantive conversation with the person you select about your chosen issue, explain what you learned from the dialogue. In 300-500 words, how did this civil discussion impact your perspective on the issue? On the person? How will this experience influence your future actions?

James Alan Cox Student Photography Scholarships ($2,500)

High school students applying for these scholarships must have completed one year at an accredited high school (student must therefore be a sophomore or older) and should have taken at least one photography or related art class.

College or technical school students applying for these scholarships must have completed one year at a accredited college, university or professional school (student must therefore be a sophomore or older), and have taken courses in photography or photojournalism.

Graduate students applying for a scholarship should be enrolled in a journalism or photojournalism program.

High school, college and graduate students should have at least one semester remaining at time of award.

Type of Awards:

  • Five (5) Digital SLR Cameras will be awarded to five (5) high school students. (High school applicants should only submit still photographs. The video awards are for college and graduate students only.)
  • Five (5) $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to five (5) college or technical school students, payable to their school. Four awards will be for video work while one will be for still photography.
  • One (1) $2,500 scholarship will be awarded to one (1) graduate student, payable to their school, for video work.


Focus of work and entries: PHOTOJOURNALISM. Scholarships will be awarded to those students whose work "tells a story". This is a fairly broad topic and may include a variety of subject matter and approaches (breaking news, sporting events, etc.) Please keep in mind, for the still photography submissions, that we are NOT looking for "art" photography.

One suggestion, for subject matter, is the current crisis our world is facing: COVID-19. All of our lives have been changed by the Coronavirus. Much like 9/11 changed the lives of your parents, this event will change your world forever. You can show, through images or video, how COVID-19 has affected life in your school, your home, and your community. (In terms of still photography, you may submit individual images that stand alone or a series of photos.) Topics might include empty shelves in stores and empty classrooms, or health care workers bravely battling this virus. Stories might also focus on how you and your family are dealing with this pandemic – playing games, making meals together, and, of course, navigating the new educational system of distance learning. We urge you to go out and record the history that is being made all around you (and be sure to identify your photos by location and date).

Again, we are looking for photojournalism. We are asking you to do a lot with this application – write an essay and send us your transcript and recommendations – so if you are submitting still photos, please don't ruin your chances of being considered by entering images of flowers, glamour shots or kittens – no matter how adorable they may be.

Lamber-Goodnow Scholarships $1,000

The Lamber-Goodnow Injury Law Team (an award-winning personal injury law firm serving Phoenix, Denver & Chicago) awards several academic scholarships to students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in a range of programs and schools.

1) College Scholarship - Two for $1,000 each

Each year, the Lamber-Goodnow Injury Law Team awards two scholarships to innovative and highly creative high school and college students. We seek essay submissions from students who are creative thinkers and problem solvers. Whether you are a star in your local community, an aspiring leader, a tech whiz, an engineer or a creative writer, we want to hear from you.

Creative thought, motivation and execution are important to us. Innovation is just as important in the legal process as it is in the rest of life. To make progress and improve upon our circumstances and surroundings, we must be willing to take risks that can influence and drive positive change. We want to support students who buck the trend, think outside of the box and deliver on this concept in everyday life and in school.

2) Nursing Scholarship - One for $1,000

When someone is injured, quality health care and nursing makes a real difference in people's lives. Unfortunately, the expense associated with a nursing degree can be cost-prohibitive for countless people who would be assets to the profession. As a result, each year, the Lamber-Goodnow Injury Law Team awards a $1,000 nursing scholarship to a driven, caring and compassionate future nurse.

3) Law School Scholarship - One for $1,000

Quality legal representation can have a meaningful impact on people's lives. On a large scale, judicial decisions that are made impact society at large. On a smaller but no less important scale, individual cases can help to right wrongs. Our justice system is a great one, but to remain great and to improve, it needs quality people in it.

The personal injury lawyers on the Lamber-Goodnow team want to see the best and most qualified individuals enter the legal profession regardless of economic circumstances. To help this cause, we created a law school scholarship.

4) Medical School Scholarship - One for $1,000

Quality physicians change lives. Of course, doctors can save and improve the quality of a person's life by providing the highest levels of care as a practitioner. Doctors can also change lives by exhibiting compassion, empathy and understanding to their patients.

We see the importance of both of these elements in nearly every one of our cases. For this reason, we want to see the most qualified individuals enter the field. This is the driver behind our medical school scholarship.

5) Physical Therapist / Occupational Therapist Scholarship - One for $1,000

Physical therapists and occupational therapists have one of the most important responsibilities in the healthcare industry: going through the day-to-day efforts of helping people rehabilitate and get back into life.

This work can be challenging on many levels. The specific exercises and programs themselves must be executed properly. Equally if not more important, however, is that physical and occupational therapists must be motivators for their patients. This rare combination is hard to find. When it happens, patients improve and their lives get better. We hear this time and again from our clients. This is why we want to see the highest-caliber people who are passionate about health care entering the field.

6) Summer College Scholarship - One for $1000

In addition to the above scholarships, the Lamber Goodnow injury law team awards two scholarships each: 1) one $1,000 college scholarship, and 2) one $1,000 law school scholarships.

Cynthia was a loved member of her community as a proud parent, supporting teacher, devout church member, volunteer, and so much more. In 2020 amid the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, she fell sick with the unfortunate disease that lead to her passing. So, it is, this scholarship foundation has been established by her family to provide students of all backgrounds the opportunity to provide some financial assistance in pursuing an education after high school.
