2019 Steinberg Law Scholarship

Supporting Higher Education

Steinberg Law Firm is offering you the opportunity to receive a scholarship to support your higher education. Five South Carolina graduating seniors who plan to attend a four year institution of higher learning in the fall will receive a $1,000 scholarship this year by submitting a creative essay that explains how you see personal injury attorneys fighting for rights, and whether we as a society benefit (or do not) from the adversarial legal system..

Selection of scholarship winners will be based on school activities, special honors and awards, community involvement and most of all: your story.

About Steinberg Law Firm

As one of the first Jewish attorneys in Charleston, Steinberg experienced discrimination and this inspired him to assist another disenfranchised group during that time — African Americans.

The firm began handling criminal and civil cases, and in the early 1920’s, Steinberg became interested in workers compensation law. There were, however, no workers compensation laws on the books at the time. Steinberg and other South Carolina attorneys then gathered statutes from other states and lobbied to add a similar law in South Carolina in 1936.

With over 170 years of combined award-winning legal experience, our team of personal injury attorneys at Steinberg Law Firm works together to help people with:

  • Workers’ Compensation Cases
  • Auto Accident Claims
  • Wrongful Death Cases
  • Social Security Disability Claims
  • Personal Injury Claims
  • Construction Defect Cases

How to Apply

To be considered, applicants must submit the following materials with their 2019 application form below:

  • An up-to-date high school transcript.
  • A list of your school activities, special honors and awards, and community involvement.
  • An essay or creative entry that explains how you see personal injury attorneys fighting for rights, and whether we as a society benefit (or do not) from the adversarial legal system.
  • Essays are limited to 700 words.

Personal injury lawyers are often the first line of defense for injured people who lack the financial resources to go up against big corporate or institutional interests.


Start of submission: January 14, 2019
Deadline of submission: April 29, 2019

Scholarship recipients will be announced at each school’s year end award ceremony. If a school does not have such a ceremony, the respective scholarship winner will be notified no later than June 4th.
