The Massachusetts Bar Association is currently accepting
applications for its Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. Scholarship - a
$10,000 scholarship that will be awarded this April to a third-year
law student attending a Massachusetts law school who is committed
to providing legal assistance to underrepresented
individuals/communities in Massachusetts upon graduating.
Candidates applying for this scholarship must meet the qualities
that the MBA values and finds essential in those who will become
practicing attorneys. In particular, applicants must: demonstrate a
strong and specific commitment to serve the public interest; have a
proven record of hard work and academic accomplishment; and have
demonstrated integrity and honesty.
Applicants must submit a completed online application, including
three essay questions, along with a letter of recommendation and
resume to [e-mail holmesscholarship] no later than Feb. 12. The
MBA may then require a transcript and may conduct an in-person
interview of the final applicants to further assess that
applicant's experience, qualifications and interests. The
scholarship will be awarded at the MBA's Annual Dinner on April 28,
2016, at the Westin Boston Waterfront.
