The Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation (RMMLF), one of the world's best known organizations bringing together practitioners involved with natural resources issues, has announced its Spring 2011 Scholarship Program.

The program provides financial support for students who "have the potential to make significant contributions to scholarship in natural resources law," according to the RMMLF.

Sturm College of Law full-time students who can "demonstrate a commitment to study natural resources law or who (are) undertaking the study of natural resources law" are eligible to apply for a scholarship. Spring 2011 tuition scholarships may cover partial or full tuition costs only. Recent awards have ranged from $1,500 to $11,000.

The criteria for selection include:
  • Potential to make a significant contribution to the field of natural resources law
  • Academic ability
  • Leadership ability
  • Year in law school
  • Financial need
Applications, which are due by Oct. 1, 2010, will be evaluated by the RMMLF Scholarships Committee.

Don Smith, Director of the Sturm College of Law Environmental and Natural Resources Law Program (ENRL), encouraged all interested students to consider applying. "Over the past few years, DU has been honored to have several of our students awarded with RMMLF scholarships. For example, this fall two students -- Chelsey Russell, who is seeking her JD degree, and Bhagyast Nilange, who is seeking her LLM degree -- have won scholarships. Besides the monetary award, student winners are able to note on their resumes that they have been recognized with one of these very prestigious awards."
