Minority Law Student Scholarship
In 1999, our law firm created the Schiff Hardin/John J. Waldron Endowed Fund at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. This scholarship fund was established in honor of the late John J. Waldron, a Schiff Hardin partner and Loyola University Chicago School of Law faculty member. Each year, the fund awards a scholarship to a minority student attending classes on a full-time basis who, during his or her first year of law school, demonstrates exceptional academic performance and personal character.
