For 2019-2020 Third- and Fourth-Year Students

The East Tennessee Foundation, which oversees the Tennessee Judicial Conference Foundation Scholarship, has established a fund to recognize advanced law students who have demonstrated community involvement and/or a commitment to public service and who have a financial need. 

This foundation will be awarding three (3) one-time scholarship grants to three NSL 2019-2020 Third- and Fourth-Year students.

  • The Judge Joseph S. (Steve) Daniel / Suzanne Keith Award in the amount of $3,000;
  • The Chancellor Irvin Kilcrease Award in the amount of $1,500; and
  • The Judge Richard Ray Ford Award in the amount of $1,500.

A scholarship committee will select the NSL representative from the qualified applicants.  The recipient may be required to represent Nashville School of Law by attending the annual Tennessee Judicial Conference.  The Tennessee Judicial Conference Foundation provides the cost of travel, meals, and lodging.
