Stanfield Law Scholarship

The Stanfield Scholarships Program is funded by a trust created by Mrs. Marion Barr Stanfield for Unitarian Universalists studying in the fields of art or law.

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 Otto M. Stanfield Law Scholarship

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.

The amount and number of scholarships awarded may vary each year.

Application Deadline

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 2021-2022 academic year.

Criteria for scholarship recipients include:

  • Enrollment in an accredited institution
