Kid's Chance of PA provides scholarships to kids of injured workers

The Workers' Compensation system is designed to cover the medical expenses incurred by a worker who suffers a work related injury or illness. Sadly, when the work related injury is severe, or, in some instances, when the work related accident results in death the impact on the worker's family can be devastating.  Not only does the family have to cope with the worker's severe injury or death, they also have to learn how to get by with loss of the injured worker's income. 

The families of injured workers should be aware that there are programs out there to help them cope with these financial difficulties.  Kid's Chance of Pennsylvania is one such program.  Children of injured Pennsylvania workers who are bound for college should check out Kid's Chance of PA's website.  This non-profit organization offers college scholarships to kids of Pennsylvania workers who died or were seriously injured in a work related accident.  The mission statement page of this organization emphasizes the long-lasting impact a work related injury or death can have on families:  "The hardships created by the death or serious disability of a parent often include financial ones, making it difficult for deserving young people to pursue their educational dreams."

The website has helpful links for families with college bound children to help them navigate the financial process of paying for college.  The average award is around $2,500.  A list of eligibility requirements and deadlines are available on the organization's website (www.kidschanceofpa.org/
