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.
