Klenk Law

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 fighting for the rights of their residents, and want to help a student with a similar passion to achieve his or her educational goals.

With that in mind, our law firm is offering 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.
