In 1978 the Howard Fox Memorial Law Scholarship Fund was established by Helen and Richard Fox and Friends to honor the memory of their son who, as a proud member of the Berks County Bar Association, served as a young attorney in the Public Defender’s Office.
The Howard Fox Memorial Law Scholarship Award is presented annually at the Berks County Bar Association Law Day Event. It is given to help fund a deserving Berks County, Pennsylvania, resident embarking on his or her second year at an accredited Law School.
In June 2000, the Howard Fox Memorial Law Scholarship Fund was transferred to the Berks County Community Foundation to manage and administer.
The Berks County Community Foundation is a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to develop, manage and distribute funding to meet existing and emerging community needs. Through permanent endowments created from charitable gifts, the Community Foundation makes grants from the earnings of the endowment. By keeping the principal balance of the funds intact and spending only earnings, the Community Foundation ensures a lasting and stable vehicle for the support and development of Berks County.
Please visit www.bccf.org for an on-line application for the Howard Fox Memorial Law Scholarship. Complete applications must be submitted to Berks County Community Foundation between January 15th and April 1st.
