The Adam Lischer Memorial Scholarship was created in 2003 to provide financial assistance to residents or natives of Durham County who are attending law schools in North Carolina. To date, 20 scholarships have been awarded to students representing most NC law schools, including Duke, Wake Forest, UNC, and NCCU. Awards are based on three criteria: connection to Durham County, financial need, and professional or academic achievement.
According to the Durham Bar Foundation, the most applications they have ever received is 26. Because the selection committee may select one or two recipients, the odds are quite good for exceptional candidates!
The deadline for 2013 applications is Friday, March 15, 2013. Additional information and a copy of the application can be found here.
