Barry University School of Law is proud to announce its “Visionary Scholar” Award, a full-tuition scholarship available to select students for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Do You Have the Vision We’re Looking For?
Where do you see yourself in three years? Will you join the professional, diverse, and inclusive legal community as a first-year associate at a major law firm? Will you engage local and global communities through collaborative service? Will you pursue social justice in the courtroom, or seek knowledge and truth in politics or business?
These are the Core Commitments at Barry Law; they form the bedrock on which our students’ visions are built. Whatever your vision, we want to help you make it a reality. That’s why we are inviting you to apply to become one of our “Visionary Scholars.”
Barry Law is located in the heart of Orlando, Florida, giving our students access to thousands of legal professionals working in diverse legal fields. Our proximity to both a federal courthouse in downtown Orlando and the Fifth District Court of Appeal in nearby Daytona Beach is ideal for students who wish to pursue opportunities beyond county and circuit courts. Our students thrive in this environment – and you can, too!
Here’s how to apply for a "Visionary Scholar" Award:
1. Apply for admission to the Fall 2014 class at Barry University School of Law through LSAC.org. The application is free.
2. Write a one-page essay on your vision for the future and how you plan to pursue it. Discuss how your vision relates to Barry Law’s Core Commitments and how graduating with less law school debt can make your vision come true. Essays should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, May 26.
Our Selection Committee will review all “Visionary Scholar” essays, awarding a limited number of full-tuition scholarships to those students who have demonstrated the ability to excel in their undergraduate studies and who we believe best embody the Barry Mission and Barry Law’s Core Commitments. Each applicant's essay will be considered along with LSAT score and UGPA.
Please contact our Admissions Office if you have questions about the “Visionary Scholar” Award.
