The Steinberg Law Firm Announces Scholarships to South Carolina Students Entering College
As a local Charleston area law firm, the Steinberg Law Firm strongly believes in giving back to its community. For each of the past five years, the firm has awarded five $1,000 scholarships to high school and college students to help with their college tuition. This year, the Steinberg Law Scholarship Program had over 35 applicants, and selecting the scholarship winners was challenging. However, the scholarship committee recently announced the winners after carefully reviewing the applicants’ submissions.
The firm’s Scholarship Committee, comprised of five staff members, carefully reviewed each application based on a written essay, extracurricular activities, community service, grades, and special honors and awards. While the firm had many qualified applicants, these six scholarship winners submitted exemplary essays and embodied the values of the Steinberg Law Firm. The recipients include one current college student and six high-school seniors who will be entering their first year of college later this year.

Through Home Again, John has helped raise thousands of dollars for shelters and has furnished homes for over 500 people. He also works with the Veterans Administration, assisting veterans currently experiencing homelessness.
