Scholarship Awardees

2018 Award Recipients

The Sarita and Claire Wright Lucas Foundation is proud to announce that in 2018 we have committed to supporting our Scholarship Awardees financially during their first and if necessary second attempt at passing the Bar Exam. The SCWL Foundation made this amendment to our guidelines in order to fully support our Awardees as they work toward their goal of becoming Prosectors.
