College Scholarships

Encouraging And Developing The Next Generation By Investing In Education.


King Law Gives Back is a college scholarship program.  This program began in the Spring of 2017 by the partners of King Law.  It is our goal to invest in our local communities while encouraging and developing the next generation of professionals.

Each year King Law offers scholarship funds for area high school seniors who have been accepted to college and plan to further their education.  Applicants are required to submit an essay to our team and recipients are selected based on their college plans, career goals and creative writing.

In 2017 King Law Gives Back awarded two scholarships totaling $2,000.  The first two recipients of King Law Gives Back were Mr. Caleb Hill of Rutherfordton, North Carolina and Mr. Jay Wilson of Shelby, North Carolina.  In addition, these young men were also given the opportunity of a one-week King Law internship the summer before they began college.

In an ever changing world, the only constant seems to be change.  At King Law we are tremendously excited about being in “growth mode”- geographically, personnel-wise, practice area, and community investment.  King Law looks to grow King Law Gives Back- A Scholarship Program in the years to come by extending this opportunity to  students across Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina.
