Two Scholarships Available for 2019

Each year, the Lawrence Bar Association awards scholarships to local students to help defray the costs of attending law school. The scholarships are awarded to based on a combination of academic merit and financial need. Applicants must be currently attending law school in the United States, demonstrate a clear desire to further the aims of the legal profession, and whose primary residence is within the Greater Lawrence cities and towns (Lawrence, Andover, North Andover, Methuen). 

This year, there are two scholarships available: (1) $4,500 provided by the Sargent Battershill Fund and, (2) $2,500 provided by the Lawrence Bar Association Educational Trust. All applicants will be considered for both awards and the winners will be selected on an objective and non-discriminatory basis, regardless of applicant's race, creed, color, sexual orientation, religion, disability or sex. Late applications cannot be accepted.

Application Deadline is October 4th, 2019!
