Scholarship Opportunity – Howard Fox Memorial Law Scholarship Fund

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. In 2000, the Howard Fox Memorial Law Scholarship Fund was transferred to the Berks County Community Foundation to manage and administer.

The scholarship supports graduates of Berks County, Pennsylvania, high schools who will be entering an accredited law school or who are currently attending an accredited law school to pursue a law degree. Preference will be given to students entering their second year of law school; however, all applicants meeting the criteria are encouraged to apply. Previous recipients of a scholarship from this fund may reapply in a future year – as long as they will still be in law school – and will be considered along with the other applicants; but previous recipients will not receive preferential treatment.

Please refer eligible students to our web site,, to apply on-line for the Howard Fox Memorial Law Scholarship. Applications must be submitted between January 15th and April 1st.
