The Metropolitan Black Bar Association Scholarship Fund


Deadline Date: Mar 1st, 2014
Posted Date: Sep 21st, 2011


The Metropolitan Black Bar Association has established The Honorable George Bundy Smith Scholarship Fund, which offers three scholarships to students who demonstrate qualities of leadership, a passion for the arts and sciences, or a commitment to diversity and academic excellence. The Fund is in honor of Judge Smith, who for many years provided board leadership and guidance to the Metropolitan Black Bar Association, including starting the organization’s first scholarship fund. Above all, Judge Smith values education and leverages his success to the benefit of the African-American community.


The competition is open to all students—both full and part-time J.D. candidates and LL.M. candidates—attending eligible law schools. “Eligible” law schools mean all accredited law schools within New York City limits. Students are permitted to apply to more than one of the offered scholarships. If a student elects to do so, he/she must submit entirely separate application packages for each scholarship. Students may be selected for only one scholarship.
