An award of $10,000, in memory of Giles S. Rich, Circuit Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, will be given by the Federal Circuit Bar Association to a law student showing financial need and demonstrated academic promise, either in undergraduate studies or in law school. Selection for the award will be based primarily on a written submission of no more than one page setting out the applicant's financial need, any interests in particular areas of the law, and any qualifications for the award considered relevant by the applicant. The submissions should also include all of the applicant's college and law school transcripts, and a one page curriculem vitae. All of the submitted materials will be considered, and prior academic performance will not be the primary criterea for selection. In addition, depending on funds available and other factors, the Association also annually considers awarding other scholarships based primarily on need. These latter scholarships are awarded in memory of William Bullinger, a respected practitioner who tirelessly advanced the Association's encouragement of professionalism, civility in practice, and dialogue between Bench and Bar. Last year, five of these scholarships were awarded in the amount of $5,000 each. Deadline for submission: April 30, 2007 The materials should be sent to: Stephen L. Peterson, Past President The Federal Circuit Bar Association c/o Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP 901 New York Avenue NW Washington, DC 20001-4413
