4/1 deadline - Judge Paul G. Feinman Scholarship

Post by ProBono »

A year ago this month, Judge Paul Feinman passed away. Judge Feinman, the first openly LGBT person to sit on the New York Court of Appeals, was an extraordinary judge, a devoted public servant and a cherished friend and colleague, said DiFiore.

To honor Judge Feinman’s legacy, the International Association of LGBTQ+ Judges has created a scholarship in his name to be awarded annually to a law student with a demonstrated commitment to the LGBTQ+ community who will be working as a judicial intern, extern or clerk prior to the student’s final year of law school. Information on how to apply for the scholarship is available at: https://lgbtqjudges.org/scholarship/ The Judge Paul G. Feinman Scholarship will be awarded annually to a law student who has demonstrated a commitment to the LGBTQ+ community and will be working with (as an intern, extern, clerk, etc.) a judge some time prior to the student’s final year of law school. Special consideration will be given to students who will be working with a member of the International Association of LGBTQ+ Judges.

The scholarship is in the amount of $2,500. The scholarship funds are unrestricted and may be used for tuition, housing, books, transportation, living expenses, bar application/study expenses, or any other law school-related expense.
