The Chicago Bar Foundation (CBF) is now accepting applications for its 2013 Abraham Lincoln Marovitz Public Interest Law Scholarship. The CBF’s Marovitz Scholarship is intended to support a needy law student who is deeply committed to public interest work so that financial need will not prevent the student from pursuing a legal aid or public interest law career upon graduation.
The CBF awards the Marovitz Scholarship annually to one incoming first-year student attending one of the nine Illinois law schools (Chicago-Kent, DePaul, John Marshall, Loyola, Northern Illinois, Northwestern, Southern Illinois, University of Chicago, and University of Illinois). These funds, payable over a three-year period, will enable an incoming student who intends to pursue a career in public interest law to have a significant portion of his or her tuition and related expenses covered by scholarship funding. Contingent upon the recipient’s continued compliance with the terms of the Scholarship, the student will receive a total of $40,000 in scholarship funds disbursed as follows: $10,000 in the first year of law school, $15,000 in the second year, and $15,000 in the third year. The payment schedule may be modified for part-time students.
The Guidelines and Application Form are available at http://www.chicagobarfoundation.org/marovitz-scholarship/how-to-apply. Applications are due on May 3, 2013 at 5:00 p.m., and the recipient will be announced midsummer.
