Announcing the 2020 Ricigliano & Filopei Scholarship for TBI Survivors

January 1, 2021

Our team is pleased to announce the The Ricigliano & Filopei Scholarship for TBI Survivors, a $1500 award offered to residents of New Jersey and New York who have survived a traumatic brain injury and are pursuing a college education. The scholarship is open to high school seniors, current college students, as well as high school graduates returning to school. The scholarship will be awarded to one applicant from each state.

Scholarship history

Founding partner William Ricigliano first became involved with the TBI community in 2011 when he represented an 8 year old boy who suffered a traumatic brain injury that would require a lifetime of medical care. Through that case, Mr. Ricigliano developed a passion for the science behind brain injuries, as well as a personal commitment to fight for survivors in court. He has taken on over 100 traumatic brain injury cases.

While rehabilitation is possible, traumatic brain injuries can create life-long challenges and changes for many survivors. By creating the Ricigliano & Filopei Scholarship for TBI Survivors, Mr. Ricigliano and his team hope to invest in members of the TBI community and their futures.
