Home 2L AND 3L FELLOWSHIPS & SCHOLARSHIPS Beatrice F. Kroesche Foundation Scholarship Program

The Beatrice F. Kroesche Foundation Scholarship was established to honor Beatrice F. Kroesche, a 1983 alum of the College of Law, who navigated her schooling, as a single mother with significant hearing and sight limitations, and to help defray the cost of law school education for JD students at the S.J. Quinney College of Law. The selection committee will seek candidates who are single-parents, and/or who face physical challenges; including, but not limited to, those with hearing and sight limitations.


Up to two scholarships of up to $5,000 each will be awarded for the academic year. Half is disbursed in fall semester and the other half in spring semester.
