Elisabeth A. Hutchinson was awarded two scholarships from the RMMLF, the Joe Rudd Scholarship as well as a RMMLF Scholarship, Robert N. Miller II was awarded a RMMLF Scholarship. The RMMLF Scholarship program is an especially significant one since the Foundation includes the best natural resources practitioners from the U.S. and Canada as well as from all around the world.
Don Smith, Director of Denver Law's Environmental and Natural Resources Law Program said, "Few scholarships in the natural resources field are as prestigious as those awarded by the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation. For that reason, we are particularly proud of Ms. Hutchinson and Mr. Miller's recognition."
Scholarships awarded by the RMMLF support well-qualified law students who have the potential to make significant contributions to scholarship in natural resources law. The Rudd Scholarship Program was established in 1980 in honor of Joe Rudd, a prominent natural resources attorney in Alaska. The RMMLF Scholarships were established in 1993.
