The Essex County Bar Association has funded the Biunno Scholarship Program for the 2011-12 school year. The scholarships are designed to give financial aid to students with disabilities who are currently attending law school. For this scholarship, the disability refers to a permanent physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one of more of the major life activities of the individual having such an impairment. Candidates must be residents of New Jersey, preferably Essex County, already attending law school or accepted to begin law school in the fall. They must have a GPA of 3.0 or above. Preference will be given to a person seeking to pursue a career in the field of advocacy for persons with disabilities. The application can be obtained in the Law School Financial Aid Office. The deadline for completed applications is May 6, 2011.
