Scholarship Program

Scholarships have been awarded annually since 1997 to women who are attending a Wisconsin law school and meet criteria that include service to others, academic achievement and unique life experience or circumstance.

Additionally, consideration for the Virginia A. Pomeroy Scholarship – which honors the memory of AWL past-president and former Deputy State Public Defender Virginia A. Pomeroy – is given to candidates who emphasize legal service in at least one of the following areas: service to the vulnerable or disadvantaged, civil rights law, appellate practice, public service, public policy or public interest law.

Although the specific amount is not yet set for 2016, previous scholarships have been between $2,500-$3,000 each. The deadline to apply for our scholarship is June 15, 2016. For an application, click here.
