Mike Morse Law Firm is committed to making a difference in the communities we serve. With education being one of the most reliable paths to increased opportunity, we are passionate about helping students reach their post-secondary educational goals. We also understand that college can place a tremendous financial strain on both students and their families, so we created the Winning in the Community Scholarship to help relieve that stress. The scholarship will award $2000 annually to a current or prospective college student who has excelled not only in the classroom, but in his or her community.

Growing up, Mike’s parents taught him the values of charity and public service. He’s carried these principles with him throughout his entire life, and he’s built the Mike Morse Law Firm to reflect these values.

“‘To whom much is given, much is required’ was a core value that my dad lived daily as he fought to help people in his law practice and make a difference in his community,” said Morse. “So, it was instilled in me very early that I had a responsibility to not only fight for my clients but to help to make the world around me better.”

The Winning in the Community Scholarship is meant to assist students who have made a positive and lasting impact on their community. Whether they’ve been active as a volunteer, or as an entrepreneur starting a non-profit -or anything in between- helping others is something only people with a true dedication to giving back are passionate about.
