The Women Lawyers Association of Michigan Foundation recently announced scholarship awards totaling $30,000 provided to ten Outstanding Women Law Students attending Michigan law schools. The competitive scholarships were awarded to students who demonstrated leadership on women’s issues. This year, the awardees received a 20% increase in scholarship amounts, due to the generosity of donors.

Now in its 17th year, the WLAM Foundation’s scholarship program has awarded 195 law students with close to $440,000 to support their law school educations. Specially named awards exist for scholarships supported by large and ongoing donations from  General Motors and the Dickinson Wright Women’s Network, and for a scholarship named for former WLAMF Treasurer Kimberly M. Cahill.
