The Albert Pick, Jr. Fund Law Student Scholarship Program, sponsored by The Albert Pick, Jr. Fund, has been established to assist a first-year or second-year law student who is a long-term resident of Chicago studying at one of the selected law schools in the Chicago area. One scholarship is offered each year for full-time study at one of the selected law schools.
Founded in 1947, The Albert Pick, Jr. Fund is an independent foundation managed by a dedicated board and committed to the personal philosophy of its founders Corinne and Albert Pick, Jr. – to provide under-resourced Chicago residents with the tools they need to improve their lives. In more recent years, the Fund has committed itself to further social justice and racial equity and has focused on community needs and underrepresented populations in the City of Chicago. The Fund has earned a reputation as a fair-minded and flexible grant maker responsive to the issues of the day and accessible to emergent nonprofits.
