Graduation

Keller Law Offices is proud to announce the 2nd year of its Keller Law Offices Scholarship for Higher Education. The goal of this scholarship is to provide financial assistance to a worthy student.  We understand that there are a lot of outstanding young people who, without financial assistance would not be able to go to college. Medical, social or financial obstacles can make higher education a mere dream to some students.

To help open the door to the world of higher education Keller Law Offices will be providing an annual $2,000 scholarship to an exceptional student enrolled for the fall of 2017. The scholarship committee will base the judging criteria on financial need and the quality of a written essay.
