Business and Community Scholarship

At Yee Law Group, we strive to help local businesses and entrepreneurs find success in their fields. We’re proud to serve the community as business litigation attorneys, and we love to see our regional economy grow stronger by the day.

We believe that students play an integral part in strengthening our communities. This year, we’re giving away a $1000 scholarship to one college student who is an exceptional businessman or businesswoman.

Maybe you sell handmade items on Etsy, or you tutor fellow college students, or you babysit children in your neighborhood. The type of business you have doesn’t matter — if you’re a student pursuing an advanced education degree, and if you consider yourself an entrepreneur, we want to hear from you!
