Joye Law Firm is excited to announce the commencement of its annual scholarship program starting on February 1st. Since 2006, the firm has demonstrated a strong commitment to supporting education in South Carolina, having awarded over $300,000 in scholarships to deserving students.
This year, Joye Law Firm is proud to offer seven scholarships, each valued at $2,000, to graduating seniors in South Carolina who plan to pursue higher education at a four-year institution in the fall. The selection process emphasizes various criteria, including creative endeavors, school activities, leadership roles, special honors and awards, community involvement, academic performance, and professional pursuits.
In a continued effort to foster inclusivity and support historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Joye Law Firm introduced a dedicated HBCU scholarship in 2021. This initiative aims to provide a deserving student attending an HBCU with financial assistance for their education. Building on the success of the program, the firm has streamlined the application process, allowing applicants to apply for both the general scholarship and the HBCU scholarship using a single application.
“We believe in the power of education to transform lives, and our annual scholarship program is a testament to our commitment to supporting the future leaders of South Carolina,” said Ken Harrell, Managing Partner at Joye Law Firm. “We recognize the escalating cost for students to obtain a 4-year degree, and our scholarship aims to help students pursue their dreams.”
Applicants for the Joye Law Firm scholarships can submit their applications online through the firm’s website. The deadline for submissions is May 1st.
