Kane County Bar Foundation Currently Accepting Applications for Law School Scholarships

The Kane County Bar Foundation is currently accepting applications for Law School Scholarships for the 2014-2015 academic year. Scholarships are awarded to law students whose permanent address or the permanent address of at least one of their parent/guardians is in Kane County.  The Foundation may take into consideration whether the applicant intends to practice law in the 16th Judicial Circuit; this is not a requirement for eligibility. Through the support of the Kane County Bar Association members, the Kane County Bar Foundation has historically awarded at least two $1,500 scholarships a year to deserving Kane County resident law students. 

The Honorable Patrick Dixon Memorial Scholarship will also be awarded.  The eligibility requirement for this scholarship is the same, with additional consideration of demonstrated financial need.

Scholarship monies awarded through the Foundation will be deposited directly into the applicant’s law school financial account. Those awarded scholarships will be honored at the Kane County Bar Association Annual Dinner in June, including complimentary attendance for the recipient and a guest.

Further information and applications can be obtained on the Kane County Bar Foundation’s website: http://www.kanecountybar.org/scholarship-information or emailing director@kanecountybar.org. The Kane County Bar Foundation is a 501 (C) (3) charitable organization.
