At this time, we have no scholarship opportunities available.

Since 2006, Carter Mario Law Firm has hosted the CarterCares Scholarship. Over the years, we have awarded over $160,000 in scholarship money.

In 2019, we were pleased to announce Anthony Kane as the recipient of our CarterCares Scholarship. Anthony was awarded a $2,000 check, a new laptop for school, and a summer internship at our firm.

We were thrilled to be able to recognize a community leader and advocate such as Anthony and to support him as he pursues his Bachelor’s degree and JD in the future. Congratulations Anthony!
