With more than 360,000 residents in the area, it is no wonder that the majority of the county’s courthouses and government offices are located within the city of Bakersfield.

At The May Firm, we understand the importance of an education and just how difficult it can be to finance college these days. Robert May, our founding attorney here at The May Firm, was the first in his family to attend college! He’s incredibly appreciative of the opportunity he had to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for his undergraduate degree, then moving on to law school. As we all know, the cost of obtaining a higher education keeps rising, which can often times put students in a tough situation, both mentally and financially.
Our goal is to provide students with assistance in obtaining a higher education, and taking some of the financial burden off of hard working students.
We’re offering a bi-annual scholarship in the amount of $1,000, which will be provided to a student enrolled at either a community college or University. The scholarship will be offered and announced bi-annually on (September 30th and January 31st.) The scholarships deadline for each applicant to apply will be September 15th and January 15th of each year.
