Receiving a scholarship and utilizing federal work study permitted me to focus entirely on my studies and externships in my practice area. I was able to learn patent law in the classroom and apply that knowledge in an externship with Pfizer Inc.


The opportunities available through financial aid are about more than money. I have built relationships with professors and with the legal community. These opportunities facilitate a student’s transition from studying the law into practicing the law through real world experiences.”
