At Klenk Law, we believe that strong and community-driven leadership can yield a brighter and more just future. We have served our many communities for years and seen active and educated citizens improve a community. We want to help a student with a similar passion for achieving his or her educational goals. Thus was born the Klenk Law Community Leadership Scholarship.
With that in mind, our law firm offers a $1000 scholarship to help a student who exemplifies strong community leadership. Their community is not limited to just their hometown or where they live; it can be their town, their school, a club, or any other community they help to improve and build up.
