Harry A. Blackmun Scholarship Foundation, Inc.

The Harry A. Blackmun Scholarship Foundation, Inc., was established in 1994 by the law clerks to the Honorable Harry A. Blackmun, Associate Justice, Supreme Court of the United States (Ret.). The Justice's clerks intend this scholarship as a perpetual testament to his contribution to American jurisprudence, to his compassion and generosity of spirit, and to the inspiration he has provided them through example and personal encouragement.

At the discretion of the Foundation, the Harry A. Blackmun Scholarship may be awarded to a law student enrolled in or about to enroll in the pursuit of a juris doctor degree at an accredited law school in the United States. The recipient will be chosen based on several factors, including academic achievement, financial need, and potential for making a contribution to society and the legal profession. In addition, because the scholarship will be granted in honor of Justice Blackmun, all other considerations being equal, preference will be given to applicants with a significant tie to the Justice's home state of Minnesota. The decisions as to whether to award any scholarship at all, the number of scholarships, and the amounts, rest in the sole discretion of the Foundation.
