The Rise Above Scholarship

We understand countless students are unable to pursue further education after high-school due to finances. With our scholarship opportunity, we hope to help make a student’s education goals possible. We believe the next generation should be fully equipped with the knowledge and skills to better serve their community and encourage world-change where necessary. 

The people of our community are important to our law firm and are the reason we have decided to grant a $500 scholarship opportunity to two high-school seniors or currently enrolled college students. Education is essential in determining our society’s future.
