The Sarita and Claire Lucas Foundation Scholarship is a competitive scholarship program that makes annual awards to qualified, outstanding graduating African American female law students. The scholarship was established in 2015 and is named after Sarita Wright Lucas and her daughter Claire in recognition of Sarita’s integrity and passion for justice.

Sarita and Claire Lucas Foundation Scholarships are awarded to help African American female students with the costs associated with preparing for and taking the Delaware, Massachusetts or Pennsylvania* Bar Exam. These women, like Sarita, should have an interest in pursuing careers in prosecution.

Awards generally do not exceed $5000.00 and are intended for women who will practice criminal prosecution in Delaware, Massachusetts or in the following counties of Pennsylvania: Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester and Delaware.

Students who are interested in applying for the Sarita and Claire Lucas Foundation Scholarship are strongly encouraged to review the eligibility criteria and program description before submitting an application.

*Please note: At this time, the scholarship is awarded only to women who will prosecute in Delaware, Massachusetts or the following Pennsylvania counties: Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester and Delaware.
