The Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, one of the world's premier professional groups focusing on natural resources issues, has announced its Spring 2012 Scholarship Program.
The purpose of the program is to encourage the study of natural resources law by well qualified law students who have the potential to make significant contributions to scholarship in natural resources law. Scholarship applications are due October 3, 2011.
Full-time Denver Law 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 this scholarship. Recent scholarship awards have ranged from $1,500 to $11,000.
Don Smith, director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Program, encouraged Denver Law students to consider applying for the scholarship. "In recent years, Denver Law has been honored to have many of our students win substantial scholarships from the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation. These scholarships benefit students not only in terms of the money received but also in helping students network with many of the world's finest leaders and thinkers in the natural resources sector who are a part of this prestigious organization."
