2024 Safe Cycling Scholarship

The personal injury attorneys at Felix Gonzalez Law Firm have dedicated their practice to protecting those who have been injured due to the negligence of others. We care about everyone’s safety, especially cyclists on the road. This year, we are offering a scholarship to promote safe cycling. 

Cyclists are faced with many distractions and dangers on the road. It is important for citizens to take precautions while on the roads, not only for themselves but for others around them. For example, in San Antonio, the city is considering extra precautions to ensure safe conditions by expanding bike lanes. 

For this scholarship, please explain how governmental measures like bike lanes can help prevent accidents in your community.  Discuss old and new laws, education around the dangers of cycling in an unsafe space, and if you think more could be done to ensure the safety of cyclists.

Once all submissions have been received, the entries will be reviewed, and one student will be selected to receive a $1,000 award. The award will be given to the person who best describes the effect of safe cycling in their community and/or changes that are being implemented.



  • The scholarship is open to any current US high school senior, college student, or graduate student residing in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia and enrolled for the 2024 school year. There is a preference for students in Texas, but all eligible students are welcome to apply.
