Tosi & Rose is pleased to announce the creation of the law firm's first annual Tosi & Rose Community Scholarship. We invite all philanthropy-minded students to apply. The candidate who most embodies the true meaning of giving back to the community will be granted a $1,000 scholarship so that they may pursue an education that further enriches them and equips them to continue being active community participants through their adult lives. Our primary consideration in granting this scholarship is how well the applicant can connect their community involvement with their career goals. Applicants must meet the eligibility criteria outlined below and submit their completed applications by December 1, 2019.About the Tosi & Rose Community Service ScholarshipAs a mass tort law firm, Tosi & Rose lawyers see the harm that befalls people when others do not place a priority on caring about how their actions affect the people around them daily. In a legal practice, this philanthropic disconnect manifests as plaintiffs vs. defendants or victims vs. big corporations.
But the way we see it, things do not need to get this bad, and the change can start small—and local. This is why we developed the Tosi & Rose Community Service Scholarship. We want to encourage young adults who have already demonstrated a passion for helping others to continue on this path throughout their educational and professional careers. “By volunteering in the community, a person can raise that community up—to give it and its member a deeper sense of pride and dignity,” said Todd Terry, of Tosi & Rose. “Not only does community involvement help our neighbors, but it also helps ourselves. “Volunteering and giving back helps develop effective communication skills, a strong work ethic, and a sense of balance,” Alex Gallo adds. “And when these volunteering young adults are out working as professionals in the real world, the community service they have immersed themselves in today will shine through as a sense of responsibility that can change the world.”Tosi & Rose encourages all college-bound students who have discovered the fulfilling rewards of community service to apply for our first annual Tosi & Rose Community Service Scholarship. We cannot wait to hear what you have been up to—and where you plan to go tomorrow. Maybe we can help you get there.
