The annual Michael A. DeMayo Arrive Alive Scholarship Program is an exciting opportunity for local high school seniors to have a chance to win a $2,500 scholarship toward their college education. The deadline for 2024 submissions is Monday, February 12, 2024. The Scholarship Application will also be mailed to local area high schools that are eligible to participate.

When the scholarship program initially began in 2003, DeMayo Law Offices awarded five $1,000 scholarships to Mecklenburg County seniors who wrote essays on how the community could help curb underage drinking and driving.
Over the past 22 years, the scholarship program has grown. The program now includes 15 winners, across 23 counties, each who receive a $2,500 scholarship. Over the years, DeMayo Law Offices has awarded over $737,000 in scholarships to high school seniors in our community.
At DeMayo Law Offices we see the devastation of distracted and drunk driving on an almost daily basis. By raising awareness amongst our youth, it is our hope that we can make a positive impact in our community and save a few lives in the process, according to Michael A. DeMayo.
