Posted on: Sep 14, 2016

The Government Practice Section of the Indianapolis Bar Association is made up of attorneys who represent government agencies, or who represent clients in connection with matters involving government agencies. In support of its mission to promote an interest in government practice, the Section will award a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to a second- or third-year law student with an interest in government practice.

The scholarship will be awarded annually at the discretion of the Section, and a previous recipient may reapply in the subsequent academic year. An applicant must be a permanent resident of Indiana and must provide: (1) an official or unofficial law school transcript; (2) a letter of recommendation by a law school faculty member with whom the student has completed coursework (to be submitted separately by the faculty member); (3) a resume; and (4) the completed application form and 500-word essay (as described on the application form). A conference call interview may be required of the finalists.

All required elements of the application must be submitted electronically not later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 21, 2016, to Sarah Burkman, Government Practice Scholarship Committee Chair, at

Scholarship applicants will be notified of the Section’s decision not later than November 1, 2016. Proof of enrollment must be provided before funds will be disbursed to the appropriate law school on behalf of the successful applicant.
