Foundation for Advancement of Diversity in IP Law's Sydney B. Williams Jr. Scholarship

The Foundation’s scholarships are named in honor of Sidney B. Williams Jr., the first African American to hold major leadership roles in both the Foundation for Advancement of Diversity in IP Law and the American Bar Association Section of Intellectual Property Law (ABA-IPL) and who has given, and continues to give, countless hours and boundless energy to influence and assist minority students looking for a future in science and engineering to pursue law school and intellectual property law. Applying stringent selection criteria, the Foundation provides financial support to students who are well accomplished, with stellar credentials and attributes that the Foundation believes will lead to their success in the IP law field.
