Home 2L AND 3L FELLOWSHIPS & SCHOLARSHIPS Salt Lake County Bar Association Endowed Scholarship

The Salt Lake County Bar Association Endowed Scholarship was established to help finance the educational costs of attending law school for JD students at the S.J. Quinney College of Law.  The selection committee will seek candidates who are committed to practice law in Salt Lake County after graduating from law school.  Additionally, these candidates will have demonstrated resilience and grit in the face of adversity that they have experience.  These hardships may have occurred over the course of their lives and are not limited to the students’ time in law school.


One $1,000 scholarship will be awarded in fall semester.


This scholarship application is open to currently enrolled first- or second-year law students.
