CRITICAL INFORMATION REGARDING: NEED-AND-MERIT-BASED AND MERIT-ONLY SCHOLARSHIPS
Continuing students are eligible to receive both need-and-merit-based and merit-only scholarships. Need-and-merit-based awards constitute a larger dollar amount than merit-only scholarships.
Merit-only scholarships do not require a financial aid application. If you are only interested in these merit-only scholarships, you do not need to apply for financial aid.
If you want to be considered for need-and-merit-based scholarships, then you must complete all of the financial aid forms, even if you are not planning to take out student loans. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be received by the processor no later than April 1, 1996, and the Institutional Application for Financial Aid must be received by the Chicago-Kent College of Law Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, Suite 230, no later than April 1, 1996.

Pro Bono Opportunity
Pro Bono Advocates is an organization dedicated to providing legal services to economically disadvantaged victims of domestic violence, through the efforts of staff and volunteer attorneys, assisted by law students and others. PBA/LAW also undertakes advocacy to improve and increase free legal services to battered women and the poor.
HERE'S WHERE YOU COME IN: PBA is looking for law students to participate in its work. You can conduct detailed interviews of prospective clients, help to determine their eligibility for a protective order under the pertinent statute, prepare the initial pleadings for an emergency order of protection, fill out other necessary judicial forms, and otherwise assist in helping these domestic violence victims get legal redress and move on with their lives. If you have a 7-11 license, you can represent clients in court, under the supervision of a licensed attorney. You also may be able to assist attorneys who are representing PBA clients in divorce proceedings. In short, you can help persons in need of help from the legal system while honing your own professional skills.
If you are interested in undertaking this pro bono activity, contact Prof. Joan Steinman (a member of the governing Board of PBA) (e-mail: jsteinma) and give her a copy of your resume. She will forward your resume to Swati Avasthi at PBA, who will arrange an interview with you. PBA will provide training. Thanks!
