The Paterson, NJ, Rise Above Scholarship hosted by Peter N. Davis & Associates


As a personal injury law firm, Peter N. Davis & Associates understands how life’s challenges impact people every day. We’re committed to supporting the young people in our community and doing our part to help them overcome adversity. We hope to inspire students to find ways to rise above the challenges they’ll face in school and in life.

With this in mind, we’re excited to present our Rise Above Scholarship, which will offer $1,000 to one student and $500 each to two runner-ups to be applied towards their tuition and other education-related expenses.

The personal injury attorneys at Peter N. Davis & Associates have been defending injured victims for over 20 years. When people call our office, they are usually facing tremendous challenges from dealing with serious injuries to coping with the death of a loved one. 

It is OUR mission to help these individuals and their families through these difficult times. 

In addition to our commitment to protecting the rights of injured people, we want to continue finding opportunities to support the residents of our communities who are facing adversity. 

It is for this reason that we decided to start the Rise Above Scholarship. Through this scholarship, we want to help three students in their academic journey, particularly non-conventional students who, despite life’s difficulties, may be going back to school or changing their career. 

While challenges are tough to handle, we believe they can make us stronger. We hope to celebrate those who choose to fight against their challenges. After all, life isn’t about the challenges you face. It’s about how you rise above them.
