DeMayo Law Offices is now accepting applications for our 2020 Michael A. DeMayo Scholarship award program.
The annual Michael A. DeMayo Scholarship program is an exciting opportunity for local high school seniors to have a chance to win a $2,500 scholarship toward their college education. The deadline for submission is Monday, March 16th, 2020. The Scholarship Application will also be mailed to local area high schools that are eligible to participate.
The firm will be awarding a total of $37,500 in college scholarships to 15 high school seniors who reside and attend schools in counties served by the firm, including: Mecklenburg, Gaston, Catawba, Union (NC), Cabarrus, Cleveland, Lincoln, Rowan, Caldwell, Stanly, Iredell, Alexander, Burke, Robeson, Scotland, Richmond, Anson, Cumberland, York, Lancaster, Chester, Union (SC), Cherokee, Chesterfield, Marlboro and Dillon.
When the scholarship program initially began in 2003, the personal injury law firm awarded five $1,000 scholarships to Mecklenburg County seniors who wrote essays on how the community could help curb underage drinking and driving.
Over the past 18 years, the scholarship program at DeMayo Law Offices has grown. The program now includes 15 winners, across 26 counties, each who receive a $2,500 scholarship.
To qualify, students must have applied for full-time enrollment at a four-year university or college and must complete and return a scholarship application to DeMayo Law Offices by the announced deadline. Scholarships will be awarded based on the student’s essay, PowerPoint presentation, or brochure, as well as their application, SAT scores, transcripts and letters of recommendation. Students are asked to submit their presentations and all related documents by mailing their completed applications to the address provided or in person at one of our local offices. Winners will be chosen by a selection committee.
“Our firm has chosen this investment in our youth so that all of us together can help prevent underage drinking and driving,” DeMayo said. “We are proud to make a difference in our community by awarding over $300,000 in college scholarships to deserving high school seniors in North and South Carolina since 2003.”
