At. Leonard G. Schumack, president of the Schuylkill County Bar Association Scholarship Fund, announces that the fund will receive applications for aid for Schuylkill County students attending law school.

To be eligible, applicants must be residents of Schuylkill County for three consecutive years and either must be enrolled in a law school accredited by the American Bar Association or have taken law school aptitude tests and applied for admission to a law school.

Applications may be obtained from the office of the Schuylkill County Bar Association Scholarship Fund, Law Library, Court House, 401 N. Second St., Pottsville and must be submitted to the fund by July 31.

The Scholarship Fund Directors will study the applications, make the awards and notify the successful applicants as soon as possible. Many factors are considered by the directors in making their decision in order to meet the needs of the applicant.

This is the 35th year for the scholarship aid program; last year awards were made to 17 law school students.
