PETERS SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE
Applications are now available in room 024 for the Glenn D. Peters Law School Scholarship Fund. Applicants must be permanent residents of the Northern District of Indiana for the United States District Court--this basically means north of Indianapolis. While financial need can be a factor, greater weight is assigned to academic achievement and involvement in quality extracurricular activities. Application deadline is June 1, 2001.
HONOR, GLORY, MONEY!!
Dust off that seminar paper or that law journal note or perhaps even a moot court brief! There likely is some writing contest in the country that awaits your submission. Take a look at the bulletin board across the hallway from room 024 for descriptions of many of these contests. There is also a Web site dedicated to collecting all of these, at: http://www.people.memphis.edu/~law/. Many of our former law students have won prizes, one for $4,000!!! A little extra work on your part could be profitable.
