Program 1

SCHOLARSHIPS: During academic year 2020-21, the Foundation provided $330,345 to fund scholarships for 74 full-time and part-time UDC Law students. The scholarships were awarded by UDC Law in varied amounts based on academic merit, personal accomplishments, and financial need. Scholarships benefit students by easing the financial burden of law school, allowing them to devote more time to their studies and, by reducing educational debt, increasing their future employment options. Scholarships benefit UDC Law by helping it to recruit and retain talented and public interest-oriented students. In turn, in addition to graduating effective and ethical future attorneys, UDC Laws emphasis on recruiting and enrolling students who belong to groups underrepresented at the bar benefits the legal profession by increasing its diversity.

Funding for the Rauh Chairs and Professor serves to acknowledge contributions to building the Schools capacity and reputation. Funding for the Olender Director serves to increase capacity in UDC Laws nationally-recognized clinical program, which benefits the students who receive hands-on legal training as well as the low-income D.C. residents who are served by the clinics.
