Charleston, SC (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
The Joye Law Firm is now accepting applications for the 2014 'Joye in the Community' college scholarship program.
College-bound high school seniors interested in applying for one of the six available $2,000 scholarships can access information and application materials at JoyeInTheCommunity.com. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2014.
Students will be evaluated based on several factors including academic achievements, extracurricular activities, leadership skills, community involvement, personal pursuits and a required essay.
To qualify, students must submit:
- A typewritten or neatly printed application that is completely filled out.
- A current high school transcript.
- A signed, typewritten 350-500 word essay on the following topic: One of your fellow classmates, who was driving home from a party, has died in a car crash. Two other classmates were in the car with him and were severely injured but survived. Police say that all three had been drinking alcohol and that the driver was speeding and lost control of the car. You are determined to make sure this never happens to another friend. What could you and your friends have done to prevent this tragedy? What can we, as a community, do to get the message across that drinking and driving kills?
The winners will be announced in May and scholarships will be made payable to the four-year institution of his or her choosing.
