All high school seniors in Clay County are encouraged to apply, regardless of academic merit or financial need status. In addition, the Clay County Bar Association will award two $1,000 scholarships to a high school senior to encourage the pursuit of continuing education in the field of business or law.

Students must be United States citizens or legal residents. Seniors may attend any public or private high school in Northeast Florida as long as they live in Clay County. They must be planning to attend an accredited vocational school, community college, or university.
