Foundation Public Service Scholarship Award


The Foundation of the Federal Bar Association Public Service Scholarship, established by the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association, seeks to provide $5,000 as assistance to a graduating high school senior planning to attend a four year college or university. At least one of the parents (or guardians) of the student must be a current federal government attorney or federal judge and a member of the Federal Bar Association. If you have children that meet these criteria, we eagerly encourage them to apply for this scholarship.

The Foundation of the Federal Bar Association, chartered by an Act of Congress in 1954, serves the federal legal community through its efforts to advance the science of jurisprudence; promotes and improves the administration of justice; and facilitates knowledge and understanding of the law.

The scholarship is funded by the Earl W. Kintner Memorial Fund. Earl W. Kintner was a distinguished member of the Federal Bar Association and two-time national president. His professional and civic leadership and dedication serve as a model to any aspiring academic.
