Monterey College of Law establishes scholarship for alums of Boys & Girls Club

Monterey College of Law is establishing a scholarship program for alums of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County.

The Monterey College of Law will provide an annual, full-tuition law school scholarship to alumni of the Monterey County Boys & Girls Clubs for each of the next 10 years, starting this fall. The law school will also establish a similar scholarship program with the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Cruz.

"We share an important mission with the Boys & Girls Clubs by providing quality educational opportunities for local students,” said Mitchel Winick, dean and president of the law school, during the announcement of the scholarship at the annual breakfast of the Boys & Girls Club in Seaside.

 “This is a unique and exciting opportunity to recognize special students from our community who have worked hard and earned the chance to achieve their dream of becoming a lawyer," he said.

"This special scholarship program not only represents an extraordinary opportunity for our youth, it represents one of the largest financial sponsorships in the history of our organization," said Donna Ferraro, president and chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Club.  "This program is another inspiring example of how our community stands behind our slogan 'Great Futures Start Here'."

Persons interested in the Monterey College of Law scholarship program should contact Mary Dawson at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County at 394-5171.
