CHAI x 66 Scholarship

About the CHAI x 66 Scholarship

The Tobin Injury Law Firm is pleased to offer the CHAI x 66 Scholarship. The word “CHAI” is a Hebrew word that means “life”.  Each letter of the Hebrew alphabet has a numerical value. The value of the letters in the word “chai” add up to the number 18.

Next, the generally accepted age of retirement, at least according to the Social Security Administration, is 66. So for many people the idea is you work until 66 before you can retire.

The concept for this scholarship is that during your career, you should endeavor to do good and help.  So, take the numerical value of the Hebrew word for life “CHAI”, 18, multiply it by the age that you will likely retire from your career, i.e. 66, and you get $1,188! This scholarship will pay $1,188 toward your education at any accredited college, university, or graduate school.


  • Any student who is enrolled at an accredited undergraduate or graduate program anywhere in the United States..
