Scholarships available

Crumley Roberts is accepting scholarship applications from North Carolina high school and community college students. A total of six scholarships will be awarded, three of which will go to high school graduates who have been accepted to a four-year university and three of which will be awarded to community college students who plan to transfer to an accredited four-year college or university.

Each scholarship is worth $2,500. Screening of applications will conclude in February, and scholarships will be awarded in March.

The Crumley Roberts Scholarship Program was created 27 years ago as a way to help college-bound students achieve their career goals through continued learning. To date, the Crumley Roberts law firm has awarded nearly a quarter of a million dollars in scholarships and technology.

Parents and students are encouraged to meet with their school guidance counselor or transfer office to discuss qualifications for scholarship eligibility.
