BYU Law announces the 2016 Clark Scholars who will be awarded a full-tuition scholarship and a $5,000 yearly stipend for the three years they attend law school:
In addition to financial support, the students will also benefit from unique opportunities for academic enrichment and expanded networking. Clark Scholars will be provided funding to attend two domestic academic conferences during law school to enhance their exposure to subject matter areas of interest. In addition, they will compose the Clark Scholars Board under the sponsorship of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and will have additional interaction with visiting jurists, scholars, and other distinguished guests.
Gayla Sorenson, Dean of admissions, describes the impact of the new program, "In addition to the outstanding value offered by BYU Law to all its students, these students chosen for the Clark Scholars Program will receive an enhanced academic experience with lifelong benefits. We know these students will in turn play key roles in promoting the legacy of J. Reuben Clark through their academic excellence and dedicated service."
