Schuylkill Bar associaton scholarship fund now accepting applications
Atty. Leonard G. Schumack, president of the Schuylkill County Bar Associaton Scholarship Fund, announced that the fund will receive applications for aid for county students attending law school.
To be eligible applicants must be residents of the county for three consecutive years and either must be enrolled in a law school accredited by the American Bar Associaton or have taken law school aptitude tests and applied for admission to a law school.
Applications may be obtained from the office of the county bar association care of the Law Library, Courthouse, 401 N. Second St., Pottsville, Pa. 17901-1756, and must be submitted by July 15.
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 33rd year for the scholarship aid program. Last year awards were made to 18 law school students.
