Section of Public Contract Law Scholarship Program
The purpose of the Section of Public Contract Law Scholarship Program is to address barriers to active participation in the Section by investing in attorneys who will participate actively in, and contribute to, the substantive work of the Section; will grow into future leadership positions within the Section; and will promote the balance of ideas which is the foundation of the Section's value to its members and the overall procurement community. The Section will actively seek participation of lawyers who are underrepresented in the Section, with a particular focus on lawyers of color, young lawyers, and federal, state, and local government lawyers.
- Full Section Scholarship
- Marilyn Neforas Scholarship for Young Lawyer Women in Public Contract Law
The Marilyn Neforas Scholarship, in honor of Marilyn Neforas, the Public Contract Law Section Director for over 35 years, serves to facilitate the participation and development of future leaders of young lawyer women members of the Section in Section programs and events. Scholarships will be awarded to young lawyer women who exhibit promise in developing the same traits that Marilyn has exercised so effectively on behalf of our Section — commitment, selflessness, integrity, perseverance, and heart.
