This year the Rudman Center launched a new Rudman Scholars program that awards scholarships to students who apply in their 1L spring. The Center has raised sufficient funds to offer two scholarships (plus a guarantee of summer funding for public interest work) to two rising 2Ls who are committed to public service careers.

We are pleased to announce that the first recipients of the Rudman Scholars award are Tayla George and Alyssa Scott. This past spring, the endowed scholarship committee selected Ms. George and Ms. Scott from a field of applicants.

Tayla is interested in immigration policies and reform. Alyssa is interested in military justice and law, and hopes to serve in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps.

The scholarships – as of now, $10,000 to each (not including summer grants) – will be paid out over the students’ 2L and 3L years. Applicants must commit to taking public service jobs upon graduation. Applicants must also serve as Rudman Center ambassadors and actively support our programs and initiatives.

The Rudman Center intends to fundraise to support the Rudman Scholars program with the goal of expanding it and making it more generous as we move ahead.

The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service at the UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law provides financial, curricular, and experiential support for law students who are interested in public service and public interest lawyering. We also offer events for the community that align with our mission. Please link here for more information about the Warren B. Rudman Center.
