The NP Scholars receive money for tuition through Nexsen Pruet’s Diversity Initiative, which has awarded 35 scholarships exceeding $100,000 since it began in 2008.

“Nexsen Pruet works hard to identify, engage and retain a highly-skilled and diverse workforce across the Carolinas,” says Ken Lewis, who leads the firm’s Diversity Initiative. “These scholarships help to facilitate that endeavor.”

Kenny Gardner, a litigator in the firm's Charleston office, received a diversity scholarship in 2011.
