The Association of Black Women Attorneys, Inc. Scholarship
The Association of Black Women Attorneys, Inc. has awarded over $30,000 in scholarships since 1995. The Association of Black Women Attorneys Ruth Whitehead Whaley Scholarship, established in honor of the first African-American woman to receive admission to the New York Bar, is awarded on the basis of demonstrated community service, personal financial need, and enrollment at an accredited law school in Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York.
The Association stresses that academic performance is not a deciding factor and that recommendations and personal statements should reflect community service activities.
Applicants must submit the entire application and recommendation(s) must accompany each application.
