The Intellectual Property Law Section of the State Bar of Texas is seeking applications for two $2,500 scholarships that will go to women and/or minority law students.

The scholarships facilitate and encourage women and minorities to enter the practice of intellectual property law in Texas and to become active members of the State Bar IP Section by assisting these students with their financial needs.

Any woman or member of a recognized minority group, including but not limited to African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, and Native Americans who intends to practice IP law in the State of Texas, is eligible to apply. Applicants must be enrolled in an ABA-accredited law school in Texas at the time the application is submitted. Individuals who have been accepted to law school but have not yet started classes at the time the application is submitted are ineligible.

Selection criteria of the scholarships include: merit, scholastic performance, and financial need. Consideration is also given to extracurricular activities both inside and outside law school.
