Kane County Bar Foundation Scholarship Information

Through the generosity of the Kane County Bar Association members, the Kane County Bar Foundation has in prior years been able to award multiple scholarships.  Historically, the Foundation has awarded at least two $1,500 scholarships a year to deserving Kane County resident law students.

Scholarships are awarded to deserving law students including those whose permanent address, or the permanent address of at least one of their parent/guardians is in Kane County.  Although the Foundation may take into consideration whether the applying individual intends to practice law in the 16th Judicial Circuit, this is not a requirement for eligibility.

The Honorable Patrick Dixon Memorial Scholarship will also be awarded.  The eligibility requirements for the Dixon scholarship are 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.

The Kane County Bar Foundation is a 501 (C) (3) Charitable Organization.

Application deadline is April 30, 2015.
