Linda J. Murphy Scholarship
 

The Women Lawyers’ Association of Greater St. Louis has awarded scholarships to deserving law students since 1996. The Linda J. Murphy Scholarship was named after Linda J. Murphy, who passed away in 1999.  Linda was an outstanding member of the WLA, and served as its President in 1987-1988.  The Linda J. Murphy Scholarship is currently administered by WLA’s charitable arm, The Women Lawyer’s Association Foundation. Scholarships generally range from $1000 to $6000 depending on the amount of funds available in any given year and the number of recipients chosen by the selection committee at its discretion. The WLA scholarship committee reviews applications and selects one or more recipients to recommend to the WLA Foundation’s Board of Directors for approval of the award disbursement.

  • ELIGIBILITY:
    • Applicants must be part-time or full-time female law students.
    • Applicants must be currently enrolled at one of the four Missouri law schools (Washington University, Saint Louis University, the University of Missouri in Columbia or the University of Missouri-Kansas City) or Southern Illinois University School of Law in Carbondale, and must be committed to continue law school enrollment in the fall semester following the award.
  • SELECTION CRITERIA:
    • The Linda J. Murphy Scholarship is intended to recognize students who have dedicated themselves in a significant way to advancing the quality of life and stature in our society of women through community service or otherwise.

Academic achievement and financial need are also considered.  The 2017 applciation process closed on Marh 1, 2017.    The application for the 2018 scholarship award will be available here early in 2018.
