CHENANGO COUNTY — The Chenango County Bar Association (CCBA) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the Law School Scholarship. This scholarship is available to law school students from Chenango County who have successfully completed their first, second, or third year of law school.
The CCBA is honored to provide a total award of up to $1,000 per applicant, not to exceed $3,000 per year, as a way to encourage further education and to offset the enormous financial burden to the students from our community.
The Chenango County Bar Association Law School Scholarship was established in 2007. Since then, over $22,000 has been awarded to approximately 30 recipients. These recipients have gone on to practice law not only in New York, but throughout the country including, Texas, North Carolina, and Massachusetts. Some of the former scholarship recipients have returned to Chenango County to practice and provide legal services to our community.
To apply, a letter of interest and a transcript from the past academic year may be submitted to Lisa Natoli, Esq., at 26 Conkey Avenue, Box 135, Norwich, New York 13815. Submissions must be received by August 1, 2023. Applicants may continue to apply each year that they fit the criteria.
