Injury Scholarship

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.
