Haggerty Scholars Applications – due Friday, April 27, 2018
Applications are now open for the FBA Oregon Chapter Ancer Haggerty Scholars Program. The program offers current high school juniors an opportunity to explore their interests in law and civil rights. Scholars selected for the program are recognized at the annual FBA Oregon Chapter dinner to kick off the program. Program participants then meet with a local attorney mentor, visit one or more law offices (such as a law firm, government prosecutor, or defender’s office) during a week over the summer break, and attend law and civil rights events during the 2018-2019 school year.
