Pace Law School Environmental Consortium

Pace Law School is pleased to partner with the Environmental Consortium of Hudson Valley Colleges & Universities to announce the 2011 scholarship for incoming first year students. Pace University, through the Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies, was instrumental in organizing the Environmental Consortium that now includes 55 institutions of higher education in the Hudson Valley region. The mission of the Consortium is to harness higher education’s intellectual and physical resources to advance regional, ecosystem-based environmental research, teaching, and learning through interdisciplinary, collaborative programs and information sharing.

In support of the Consortium’s mission, Pace Law School is offering a “Merit Scholarship” award to a fall 2011 entering student who is either currently enrolled in or has earned his or her bachelors or masters degree from one of the Consortium’s member institutions and has demonstrated an interest in environmental issues affecting the Hudson River watershed region.

Scholarship benefits consist of a merit scholarship ranging from $3,000 to $10,000 towards law school tuition, depending upon the student’s qualifications and Pace’s financial resources. The award is renewable each year based on continued academic excellence. The scholarship recipient will be expected to complete at least one written work related to a regional environmental issue(s) while at Pace Law School.

AMOUNT OF AWARD: up to $10,000
