NYLS creates scholarship program for NYC fire, police

New York Law School has created a new scholarship for members of New York City uniformed services and other public servants. Dean Anthony Crowell, who served as a counselor to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg,  conceived the idea of The Public Service Scholarship Program.

The program will provide three full-tuition scholarships and 12 half-tuition scholarships to qualified candidates.

“NYLS has been committed to providing access to legal education for more than a century,” Crowell said. “This scholarship program builds on that theme and will help our finest, bravest, boldest, strongest, and most talented public servants advance their careers in the greatest city in the world.”

Eligibility will be based on undergraduate GPA, LSAT score, and demonstrated commitment to community service.

“With the creation of this scholarship program, New York Law School is making a sound investment in the uniformed workforce of our city by helping to increase the education available to our members,” said Fire Commissioner Salvatore J. Cassano. “The more education and training our members receive, the better we can fulfill our duty to protect all those who live in and visit New York City.”
