GBA Foundation enhances Elon Law scholarships

The Greensboro Bar Association Foundation’s gift to the Elon Law Annual Scholarship Fund provides support for Elon Law students who are preparing to positively impact their clients and communities as future lawyers.

The philanthropic arm of the Greensboro Bar Association has made a gift to Elon Law in support of scholarships that directly support students and assist Elon Law in recruiting and retaining the next generation of lawyer leaders.

The Greensboro Bar Association Foundation, Inc. made its gift this spring to the Elon Law Annual Scholarship Fund, which has played a role in reducing student debt at graduation by nearly 30% over the past few years.

The GBA Foundation’s gift to the scholarship fund comes at a time when many considering law school are facing economic uncertainty caused by COVID-19.

“We’re thankful for the GBA’s continued support of Elon Law and, most importantly, our students, who will directly benefit from Elon Law’s Annual Scholarship Fund,” said Barbara Cini L’11, Elon Law’s assistant dean for development. “From Elon Law’s very beginnings, the GBA and its members have invested in Elon Law by mentoring our students, welcoming our alumni as members, and providing philanthropic support.”

The GBA Foundation has been a longtime supporter of Elon University School of Law including past gifts in support of the school’s expansive print and digital collections and the law school’s initial construction.
