This scholarship was named in honor of Law’s family’s dedication to medical service. It is funded with proceeds from the CCIA’s historic Charity Hospital and Training School for Nurses fund. CCIA has been supporting students with college scholarships for decades. This is the second donation the organization has given to STC Foundation this academic year.

CCIA is a long established 501.c.3 organization in the Savannah Chatham County area whose origins date back to 1979. At that time a group of neighbors took it upon themselves to improve the quality of life for their community. The main tenets of the organization are safety, sanitation, education, historical preservation and being good neighbors. The physical boundaries of Cuyler Community are: the south side of West Anderson Street to the northside of West 37th St.; the westside of MLK, Jr. Blvd. to the eastside of Ogeechee Rd./ Kolloch Sts.

STC scholarship funds are managed by the Savannah Technical College Foundation, a 501 (c)3 organization whose sole purpose is to raise private funds to support the mission of Savannah Technical College. Gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
