Here at Grungo Colarulo Injury Law, we are experienced personal injury trial attorneys committed to understanding the devastating effects that an unexpected tragedy can have on a family, and we use this knowledge of advocacy and service to give back to our communities.

We believe that it is essential to lead by example and serve one’s community and as such, hope to encourage others, particularly students, to do the same.

We believe it is important to empower others to make the world a better place by helping them realize their full academic potential. Last year, we were happy to select Albert Appouh as the winner of our scholarship because of his leadership and dedication to the community.

This year, we are proud to announce that the Grungo Colarulo Giving Back to the Community Scholarship is being raised from $500 to the amount of $1,000 in order to celebrate individuals who are committed to service in his or her community.

The scholarship will be awarded to the student whose essay best describes his or her commitment to community service and what role community service experience has played in the student’s academic career.
