Three Denver Law students have won prestigious Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation (RMMLF) Scholarship Awards.
Raven Adams, who expects to earn her JD degree in 2012, Gregory Angstadt, who expects to earn his JD degree in 2012, and Alphonsus Ihuoma, who expects to earn his LLM in Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy in December 2011, were awarded scholarships by the RMMLF.
In making the announcement, Cecilia Dalupan, the Foundation's Associate Director, said, "Law students enrolled full-time at one of the Foundation’s governing law schools who can demonstrate a commitment to the study of natural resources law are eligible to apply. Academic and leadership ability, as well as financial need, are also considered. Applications are evaluated by the Foundation’s Scholarships Committee consisting of dedicated volunteer attorneys."
Don C. Smith, Director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy Program at Denver Law, said, "There is no more prestigious scholarship that a student of natural resources law can earn than that awarded by the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation. This is a scholarship that brings its award winners to the attention of the Foundation's many members from across the world who are held in the highest esteem by their colleagues.
"Denver Law is very appreciative of the support that the Foundation has provided Raven, Gregory, and Alphonsus, and the many DU award winners from previous years," Mr. Smith said.
