Scholarship Eligibility Requirements
The Forum awards up to three scholarships for each annual conference: one scholarship is for a minority student (the Forum's Governing Committee looks for applicants who will add diversity to the current membership of the Forum and the communications law bar in general), and one or two scholarships are open to the general pool of applicants.
The applicant who receives the highest scores from our Governing Committee reviewers will be designated the Forum's "Dick Goehler Scholar." This honor is named for the late Dick Goehler, a former Chair of the Forum and a mentor to many new lawyers and law students interested in communications law.
Applicants must be a registered law student at an ABA-approved law school and must be a member of the ABA Law Student Division* to be considered.
*Note: Membership in the ABA Law Student Division is FREE! Please select the ABA Forum on Communications Law as your first choice for Section, Division, and Forum membership. It's all FREE!!
