The School of Law's centennial is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate the UConn School of Law and provide vital resources to help carry it and its students into the next century.
Our goal is to raise $5 million to support the people and programs that will make UConn Law stronger through initiatives that enhance access, affordability and impact.
Access: To ensure that the life-transformative educational experiences offered at the School of Law can be pursued by all students who want to participate.
Affordability: To provide more financial assistance to students to make the pursuit of a legal education at UConn more affordable.
Impact: To offer more support for research and work by faculty and students that foster a better and more just society.
Gifts to any fund that supports the school will count toward the $5 million goal. All alumni are invited to give generously to The Law School Centennial Fund, which will support scholarships, fellowships, and other programs that create and broaden access for all law students to the life-transformative opportunities UConn Law offers. For example, funds may support:
· Need-based scholarships that will attract the best and brightest, including students who were the first in their families to attend college, strengthening the diversity of our community
· Fellowships to enable students with the passion for nonprofit, public interest and public service work to pursue unpaid summer legal positions with those organizations
· Funding to support students’ participation in valuable legal advocacy competitions, professional seminars and other programs that advance their legal education and career development
The newly launched Million Dollar Centennial Challenge has the goal of securing 100 new gifts or pledges of $10,000 or more. Simply make an outright gift or a commitment to give $10,000 or more to an existing fund or to a new one you create that benefits the School of Law and its students. Please visit the UConn Foundation’s website to learn how you can make a planned gift to support our goals for the law school.
