2016 Law Student Scholarship

The deadline for applications for our 2016 Scholarship has passed. Please check back here in the Spring of 2017 for our 2017 Law Student Scholarship Application.



Each year, the DBA awards scholarships to eligible law students who demonstrate community service involvement, academic commitment and financial need.

Rising first-year, second-year, third-year, and fourth-year part-time students who are matriculated at an ABA accredited law school may apply to receive a $3,000 scholarship. The number of scholarships awarded each year depends on the funds raised by the DBA. 

The 2016 Scholarship Application is now available here.  The completed scholarship application and the required supplemental materials must be received via email on or before Friday, July 15, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. to be considered.
