The Steinberg Law Firm Scholarship Program

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 what moral leadership means to you and what are your personal goals regarding being a moral leader within your community?

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

How to Apply

To be considered, applicants must submit the following materials with their 2020 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 that explains what moral leadership means to you and what are your personal goals regarding being a moral leader within your community?
  • Minimum 700 word essay.

Applicants must be a South Carolina graduating senior.

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 13, 2020
Deadline of submission: April 6, 2020

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 May 4th.

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

We focus on our Community in these areas:

  • Hunger and wellness
  • Education
  • Children’s health and wellness
  • Veterans
  • Women’s health and wellness
