The Law Office of Stephen A. Burroughs is dedicated to assisting the people of East Tennessee and constantly strives to give back to our community through volunteer work, sponsorship and donations to worthwhile causes.

The Burroughs Childhood Cancer Scholarship

We are known as a tough Tennessee Personal Injury law firm that will fight tirelessly for our clients.  However, those who have faced childhood cancer know all too well that life’s toughest battles are not fought in a courtroom.  The fight to overcome childhood cancer is often solitary and isolates the child and family when they most need love and support. Too often a family’s fear and anxiety are made worse as the cost of treatment drains already limited financial resources. Even when the battle is won, it can leave little money for the survivors and their families to fund monthly obligations – much less long-term goals and dreams.

Our firm recognizes that such families need financial help along the way.  That is why the firm offers an annual scholarship for college students, who have either battled childhood cancer themselves or assisted an immediate family member in their fight against cancer.  The $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to one such college student each year.

Stephen Burroughs graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 1999 and has always been proud to practice in Tennessee.  This scholarship is just one way he seeks to give back to the State and to local communities that have been so kind to him along the way.  If you, or an immediate family member, have been affected by childhood cancer, let us help with college tuition, books, and related expenses as you seek to secure a brighter future for yourself and those you love.
