Annual Bar Study Scholarship

Each year, the Central Florida Association for Women Lawyers strives to offer a Bar Study Scholarship. 

The goal of the scholarship is to promote the CFAWL mission.  It is meant to help a recipient while they study for the Florida Bar Exam.  It is made possible through the generous donations of CFAWL members, friends, and CFAWL fundraising efforts.

For each academic year, a scholarship will be awarded to a deserving full-time or part-time law student who will take the Florida Bar Exam for the first time.

Successful applicants will have either:

  1. Demonstrably promoted the CFAWL mission through CFAWL membership and/or volunteer work; or
  2. Demonstrably involved themselves in pro bono work on their campus or in their local legal community.

If the student is not enrolled in a Central Florida law school but intends to return to this area or begin their career here, then they should explain what efforts/success they have had in maintaining or establishing ties to the Central Florida legal community.
