The Foundation of the Federal Bar Association established the Public Service Scholarship Award to recognize and provide financial assistance to a graduating high school senior who is the son or daughter of a current federal government attorney or federal judge and a member of the Federal Bar Association. The scholarship is $5,000 and can be used for tuition, books, fees or housing.
Applicants are evaluated on the strength of their academic record, leadership skills and recognition, school/community activities and service, and essay response.
Funding for the Foundation of the FBA’s Public Service Scholarship Award comes from a fund named in memory of Earl W. Kintner, who was a distinguished leader of the Federal Bar Association for many years. His professional and civic leadership and dedication should serve as a model to any aspiring academic.
