For the eighth year in a row, Joye Law Firm is helping local teens further their education by awarding $2,000 scholarships to six graduating seniors who attend high school in the state of South Carolina. Since the program’s inception, the law firm has provided nearly $80,000 in scholarships to students state-wide.
To apply, students must write short essays about the dangers of teenage drinking and driving while discussing ways that they, their families, and their communities can spread awareness and educate others about this important issue.
Recipients are chosen by the firm’s selection committee — which reviews students’ essays, school activities, positions of leadership, special honors, community involvement and academic achievement.
The scholarship application deadline is Monday, April 1. After the winning students are announced in May, the law firm members will host the students and their families for a celebratory dinner.

To recognize the importance of giving back to the community, the law firm established Joye in the Community, a year-round program that encompasses the law firm’s community service efforts. The initiative is designed to enrich the lives of everyone involved in the program and raise awareness about the needs of those in the Charleston and Myrtle Beach areas.
