The Pace University-Elisabeth Haub School of Law is pleased to partner with the Environmental Consortium of Colleges & Universities to announce the 2018 merit scholarship for incoming first year students. Pace University was instrumental in organizing the Environmental Consortium that now includes 62 institutions of higher education in the region and is headquartered in the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment.

The mission of the Consortium is to harness higher education’s intellectual and physical resources to advance regional, ecosystem-based environmental research, teaching, and learning with a special emphasis on the greater Hudson-Mohawk River watershed.

In support of the Consortium's mission, Pace Law is offering a "Merit Scholarship" award to a fall 2018 entering student who is either currently enrolled in or has earned his or her bachelors or masters degree from one of the Consortium's member institutions and has demonstrated an interest in environmental issues affecting the Hudson-Mohawk River watershed region.

Scholarship benefits consist of a merit scholarship ranging from $3,000 to $10,000 towards law school tuition, depending upon the student’s qualifications and Pace’s financial resources.  The award is renewable each year based on continued academic excellence.  The scholarship recipient will be expected to complete at least one project related to a regional environmental issue(s) while at Pace Law.

Selection is based on the student’s application and academic record.  Interested students should attach a half to one page statement to the Pace Law application of how he or she has been involved in Hudson-Mohawk River watershed environmental issues during their undergraduate work or why they have a particular interest in the environmental issues affecting the region.
