The John Lewis King Memorial Scholarship Fund
NEWS RELEASE

JOHN LEWIS KING MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The San Bernardino County Bar Association is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted from qualified students for the John Lewis King Scholarship Award. This Scholarship program was established to provide Scholarship Awards to students who have substantial contact with the County of San Bernardino and who are currently attending a California law school which is either ABA accredited or one that has been pre-approved by the JLKMSF Board of Directors.

Our deadline for application is July 1, 2015, and at least one $5,000.00 scholarship will be awarded. Multiple scholarships may be awarded, based on the number and quality of applications received.

These scholarships are made possible by generous donations to the fund in memory of the late John Lewis King, one of the foremost trial attorneys of San Bernardino County.

APPLICATION & SELECTION PROCESS
The final selection of the award recipient will be based upon such factors as academic achievement, financial need, civic accomplishments, and employment history. A letter by each applicant setting forth these factors will be required along with a completed application form, and an official transcript of at least the last three years of academic work. It is anticipated that the finalists will be personally interviewed by the members of the Scholarship Committee.

2015 Application deadline is July 1, 2015 at 5:00 p.m.

Applicants will be notified of the award decision by Friday, October 2, 2015.

If you have any questions, please call (909)885-1986 and ask for Claire or Marilyn.
