The Otto M. Stanfield Law Scholarship was established by Marion Barr Stanfield in memory of her husband. The Otto M. Stanfield Law Scholarship is available to Unitarian Universalist students entering or attending law school at the graduate level. Pre-law or political science majors are not eligible.
Information for the 2023-2024 academic year will be available in February 2023.
Mrs. Stanfield stated that the Stanfield Scholarship committee should take into consideration, “Not only the intellectual attainments and potentialities of the beneficiaries but that they consider whether in character and constructive spiritual philosophy the beneficiaries are most likely to use their legal training and their training in art for the betterment of humankind.”
The amount and number of scholarships awarded may vary each year.
Criteria for scholarship recipients include:
- Enrollment in an accredited institution
- Active relationship with Unitarian Universalism
- Deep connection and commitment to justice work
- Financial need
The recipient of each scholarship will be a person whom the committee believes will promote Unitarian Universalist values through their justice work in the larger world.
The application consists of two sections: 1) Experience & Narrative, and 2) Financial Records
Both sections must be completed and submitted before the deadline in order to be considered for the 2022-2023 academic year.
The deadline for the 2022-2023 academic year has already passed. Check back in February 2023 for information on the 2023-2024 academic year.
