Law Offices of Randolph Rice Scholarship 2018
Here at the Law Offices of Randolph Rice, we understand that the leaders of tomorrow are working and often sacrificing to receive an education today. That’s why in 2016 we launched our annual Law Offices of Randolph Rice Scholarship. The purpose is to award a $1,500 scholarship each year to a deserving student to apply towards college costs and help that student realize his or her potential.
