PHOENIX -- The National Native American Bar Association (NNABA) Foundation is excited to announce its Bar Review Scholarship Program. NNABA Foundation will award at least ten (10) $1,500 scholarships. The NNABA Foundation is partnering with regional American Indian Bar Associations to award these Bar Review Scholarships.

More information and a copy of the NNABA Foundation Bar Review Scholarship application is available at the link below.

To advance its mission to foster the development of Native American lawyers, the NNABA Foundation Board of Directors established this Scholarship Program to help Native American law students offset bar review course/program expenses. “I am excited to announce the NNABA Foundation Bar Prep scholarship,” said Jennifer Weddle, NNABA president. “These scholarships help achieve the NNABA Foundation’s goal of supporting the full inclusion of Native American attorneys in the legal profession.” The Bar Review Scholarships were made possible by the generous support of Walmart and NBCUniversal.

The scholarship recipients will be honored at NNABA’s Annual Meeting, which will be held on April 5, 2017, at the Talking Stick Resort and Casino, Scottsdale, Arizona.

The deadline to apply for these scholarships is March 17, 2017.
