Howard University School of Law
The Foundation is proud to partner with Howard University School of Law on the creation of the Greene Public Service Scholars Program. By providing 3-year, full-tuition scholarships, the Program will support and cultivate exceptional students committed to a career in public service law. This Program will help to address the disproportionate number of Black public interest lawyers, and is a key element of the Foundation’s Racial Equity Initiative. This grant is the largest donation in Howard Law’s history.
The greatest need for legal services is on behalf of individuals who rely on free or reduced-cost legal services. Social justice careers have become a privilege attainable only to students with the financial backing to emerge from college and law school without debt. The Greene Public Scholars Program returns this right to the passionate, dedicated and socially committed students who go to Howard University School of Law. The Program will feature lectures and extensive programming, as well as mentorship for students by prominent public interest lawyers. The Greene Scholars will also receive valuable training through summer placements at law firms to provide important experience. For more information, click here.
