2020 Joye Scholarship Program

Joye Law Firm is offering you the opportunity to win a college scholarship to help further your education. Congratulations to our 2020 scholarship recipients! The next program will open in February, 2021.

Our firm will offer six $2,000 scholarships to graduating seniors in South Carolina who plan to attend a four-year institution of higher learning in the fall. Selection of the recipients is based on the creative entry, school activities, positions of leadership, special honors and awards, community involvement, academic performance, and professional pursuits.



Applicants are required to submit the following materials along with their 2020 online application form below

  1. A current high school transcript; and
  2. A creative entry based on one of the following prompts:
    • South Carolina recently proposed a new version of the S.C. “Hands-Free Act” that would outlaw the use of a phone for almost any reason and increase the fines. Do you believe there are more changes to cell phone laws in your state that should be changed? Do you think the rate of distracted driving accidents would decrease if these laws were different?

  3. Nominate a favorite teacher who has inspired your creativity for a teacher prize; and
  4. A current photo (suitable for publication)


Creative entries may be but are not limited to an essay, video, infographic, song, poem, etc. Files must be in one of the following formats (pdf, doc, jpg, png, mv4, avi, wav, mp3).

Please limit written entries to 600 words and audio/video submissions to two minutes.
