Foundation of the FBA Announces the Robert A. McNew Law Student Scholarship
The Foundation of the Federal Bar Association is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for the Robert A. McNew Law Student Scholarship. This new scholarship promotes the practice of federal law by awarding a scholarship of $5,000 to a law student attending an ABA accredited law school. The scholarship is named in honor of the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association past president and founder of the Fellows program, Robert A. McNew.
The scholarship is awarded to a current law student who is a Federal Bar Association law student associate member in good standing. Applicants must submit an application, a personal essay, transcript, and two letters of recommendation. The deadline to submit the scholarship application and the required documentation to the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association is Thursday, Nov. 30.
Student memberships are relatively inexpensive — $20 per year, or $50 for the full three or four years of law school. The application form is here: http://www.fedbar.org/membershipapp.
