Scholarship Application 2017
John F. Ramey is pleased to announce his 2nd annual scholarship available to students anticipating entering school in the fall of 2017 as either a pre law undergraduate or first year law student. The $500 scholarship is intended to help defray expenses for students accepted into a school anywhere in the United States.
Applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Recipient is a U.S. citizen or otherwise authorized to work in the United States
- Recipient is accepted, and will either be attending school as a pre law undergraduate or entering law school in the fall of 2017
- Academic achievement as reflected by a minimum 3.0 GPA
Applicants must submit the following by August 15th, 2017:
- A completed resume
- 1,000 word (max) typed essay on the following topic: By the time of the next presidential election in 2017, three of the current justices on the US Supreme Court will be in their 80s. It is likely that the President who will be elected in 2017 may have the opportunity to appoint up to three new justices to the Supreme Court. Future justices could potentially face cases on everything from campaign finance to affirmative action, abortion and voting rights. Some advocate for a so-called “litmus test” during the confirmation process to try to determine how a nominee might vote on a particular issue should it come before the Court. Others argue that judicial experience or temperament should be the main qualifier, and such tests should not be used. Which do you believe is the best evaluator of a nominee, and why?
- An acceptance letter from a school within the United States
- Scholarship is to be used exclusively for school tuition and related expenses
- A check for $500 will be made payable to the award recipient’s directly to cover these expenses
- Scholarship award recipient will be notified of the selection on or about August 31, 2017
