About the PTSD Scholarship
The offices of Dansker & Aspromonte Associates sit steps away from the site of the World Trade Center. We understand firsthand the defining impact that the events of September 11, 2001, had on the nation, New York City in particular. We are also keenly aware of the lingering effects that 9/11 and its aftermath had on citizens of the city, especially first responders and members of the military.
“Dansker & Aspromonte Associates is one with New York City, and an integral piece of our mission is to assist and better understand the most vulnerable members of our community,” said Salvatore Aspromonte, one of the firm’s founding partners. “This is why we are offering a scholarship that we hope will serve the dual purpose of helping a college student while reminding the community of the care that is needed for those suffering from PTSD.”
Students applying for undergraduate education at a college or university may apply.

Your essay must focus on the topic of PTSD, a subject that remains near to the heart of New Yorkers affected by 9/11. More specifically, your paper should center on deconstructing one or more of the misunderstandings surrounding PTSD.
Approaches to the essay may vary, as you may choose to take a policy-focused stance or a more expository tact. You are free to use any anecdotes, statistics, or other relevant research. The winning paper will be well-organized and engaging.
