An award made to an entering first year student may be renewable for two additional years, resulting in financial assistance totaling $15,000 during his or her time in law school. Although each recipient will need to re-apply for the scholarship in his or her second and third year, the expectation is that the scholarship will be renewed each year if satisfactory performance in law school has been achieved, the student is otherwise eligible, and funding is available.
In addition to whether the applicant is a member of a racial and/or ethnic minority that has been underrepresented in the leg al profession, the applicant’s financial need; personal, family, and educational background; personal statement; and participation in community service activities will be considered in selecting the recipients of the ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarships. It is important for every applicant to complete all portions of the application. Financial information for the applicant and his or her parents is required to evaluate the applicant’s financial need. A committee of ABA members will select the recipients. The decisions of the committee are final.

2017 FRAN KANDEL PUBLIC INTEREST GRANT

The Kandel Grant enables law students to devote time to summer public interest projects and exposes them to legal and social concerns of disadvantaged citizens that are not ordinarily experienced in traditional law practices. The Kandel Grant program is not designed to support a summer public interest job, as worthy as one is, but rather to fund a particular project with a tangible outcome.

Each applicant sets a project budget, which includes a stipend and expenses, for a maximum Kandel Grant of $5,000. The Kandel Grant may be received in addition to school­ based or other summer public interest funding, but may not be used to duplicate a project that would otherwise already be covered by existing funding. Half of the stipend is paid at the beginning of the summer and half paid upon full completion of the grant project; reimbursement of project costs will be paid up to the maximum of the proposed and approved budget.

2017 LAW SCHOOL SUMMER STIPEND PROGRAM

The program provides stipends of up to $5,000 to outstanding law students employed as unpaid summer interns in positions with the FCC and other Federal, state, and local government agencies with a connection to the communications industry (i.e., broadcasting, cable television, telephony, satellite, wireless, information technology, Internet, mobile, etc…). To the extent a recipient receives funding from other sources (e.g., school) for the unpaid internship, the FCBA Foundation’s general policy is to adjust its stipend award so that a recipient’s total funding for the internship does not exceed $7,000. In addition, the Foundation will select one outstanding intern among those chosen to receive an additional stipend for the summer—the “Max Paglin Award.” Mr. Paglin was the former General Counsel and Executive Director of the FCC, and the founder of the Golden Jubilee Commission on Telecommunications, which compiled a definitive legislative history of the Communications Act.

Students must be enrolled in an ABA accredited law school, in good academic standing, and have a pending or accepted application for an unpaid internship with a federal, state or local government entity.

The fact that you do not intend to use your legal career as a vehicle to save the world should not deter you from seeking this scholarship. There are sometimes scores of reasons why we chose the profession that we do. For many of us, earning a good living for ourselves and our families is one of those reasons. But even if earning a good living is one of your primary goals, you also hopefully want to use your profession to make your community and the world a better place. (If not, you really should find another profession.) This is what the essay should be about. How you believe some of us, or all of us, will benefit when you become an attorney.
  • Write a 1,000 or so word essay. The topic of the essay is distracted driving. The CDC tells us that every day in the United States, more than 9 people are killed and more than 1,153 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents involving a distracted driver. A stunning 31% of U.S. drivers, ages 18-64, admitted to surveyors that they had read or sent text or email messages while driving within the past 30 days. Well-intended distracted driving awareness programs do not appear to have made even a dent in the problem. What can we do and what should we do to try save more lives?
