WLAM Foundation awards $30,000 in scholarships

The Women Lawyers Association of Michigan Foundation recently announced scholarship awards totaling $30,000 provided to 10 women attending Michigan law schools. 

The competitive scholarships were awarded to students who demonstrated leadership on women’s issues. This year, the awardees received a 20% increase in scholarship amounts, due to the generosity of donors.  Now in its 17thyear, the WLAM Foundation’s scholarship program has awarded 195 law students with close to $440,000 to support their law school educations.  Specially named awards exist for scholarships supported by large and ongoing donations from  General Motors and the Dickinson Wright Women’s Network, and for a scholarship named for former WLAMF Treasurer Kimberly M. Cahill.

Profiles of the 2013 WLAMF awardees appear on the WLAM Foundation’s web site at  www.wlamfoundation.org.
