Heart Disease Scholarship

The Berger and Green team has been serving injured and disabled people in Pennsylvania for over 40 years. We want to give back to the community and help the next generation of leaders and professionals. As part of our outreach efforts, we are offering a new annual scholarship for students living with heart disease. Beginning in 2017, our firm will bestow a $1,000 Heart Disease Scholarship upon one hardworking, eligible college student.

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States, and a growing number of young people are being diagnosed with the condition each year. Having a congenital heart defect or being diagnosed with cardiovascular disease radically affects the direction of a person’s life. There are numerous trials and limitations that people with heart disease must face that will test their resolve, character, and faith.

We do not believe that heart disease should impede a student’s education. All students should have every opportunity possible to pursue their dreams. And we want to help. It is our hope that the Berger and Green Heart Disease Scholarship will provide a high-achieving student with a little welcome relief during their journey. We encourage all eligible students to apply.
