Joye Law Firm is pleased to sponsor the 2023 Joye HBCU Scholarship program. Joye Law will provide a $2,000 scholarship to a South Carolina student who is attending a historically Black college or university within the United States.

The selection of the scholarship winner will be based on their essay entry, academic achievement, school activities, community involvement, positions of leadership, and professional pursuits. Click on the Joye HBCU scholarship link to download a copy of the application form and review the complete entry rules.

South Carolina high school seniors attending any four-year college or university are also eligible to apply for one of the six additional college scholarships offered by Joye Law. Click the link to learn about that scholarship program.

Joye Law Firm has provided legal representation to injured people in South Carolina for more than 50 years and is dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve through the Joye in the Community giving program. Historically Black colleges and universities offered higher education opportunities to African Americans before the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and remain vital education institutions today and a source of great pride.

How to apply

The HBCU scholarship application process is now open for submission of application packages.

Students who want to apply for an HBCU scholarship should submit an application, a current high school or college transcript, a list of extracurricular activities or community involvement, a current photo, and a 600-word essay addressing one of the following topics:

  • Explain why attending an HBCU is important to you
  • As a college student, what advice would you give your younger self and others about navigating peer pressure and avoiding risk-taking behavior such as drinking and driving and texting while driving?

The deadline for submission of HBCU scholarship applications is May 1, 2023. We look forward to receiving your application package.

The scholarship winner will be notified at his or her school’s year-end awards ceremony or by June 8 if there is no awards ceremony.

Good luck. We look forward to receiving your application.
