Freilich Indigenous Student Scholarship in Law


The Freilich Indigenous Student Scholarship in Law was created to assist people in the Indigenous Community who want to attend University to obtain a degree in Law to further their career aspirations.  The Scholarship aims to offset some of the financial burden of attendance at University in the first year of study.   

The Scholarship Fund was established from money donated to the University by the Freilich Foundation.
