Making a Difference

Enduring Gifts

Brooklyn Law School’s endowed scholars program is rooted in the generosity of generations of alumni and friends of the Law School. In these uncertain economic times, our graduates are entering a challenging employment environment. It is more important than ever that we support their ambitions and help reduce their debt burdens. Our goal is to increase the number of our scholarships by ten percent every year until we reach 200 scholarships by 2015. When establishing an endowed scholarship, donors have the opportunity to name the fund in honor or in memory of someone who has touched their lives. Listed below are our new scholarships this year. We hope they inspire you to contact Ursula Vesala at (718) 750 -7516 to discuss how you can do more for the next generation of BLS students.

  • A scholarship established in memory of Henry Dachinger, Class of 1960, through a generous bequest from his estate, to be awarded to a deserving student. Note: Preference, but not condition, is for a refugee or a descendent of a refugee.

  • A scholarship awarded annually to a deserving first-year evening student of Dominican Republic heritage.

  • This scholarship, created by the Brooklyn Bar Association, celebrates Judge Jones’ long and distinguished career in public service as a judge of the New York State Court of Appeals and of the New York State Supreme Court in Kings County and as a criminal defense lawyer for The Legal Aid Society. Judge Jones was known for being extremely knowledgeable on the law and committed to equal justice for everyone who entered the New York State Court System. This scholarship is awarded each year to a deserving student who exemplifies these traits.
