Roosevelt Robinson Minority Scholarship Fund
Increasing diversity in the Oregon legal community
As a community leader, former prosecutor, respected judge, and beloved friend, the Honorable Roosevelt Robinson touched the lives of many and set a sterling example of legal professionalism in public service.
Judge Robinson passed away seven years ago on August 4, 2004. To honor his legacy of inspiring ordinary people to do extraordinary things, his friends and colleagues established the Roosevelt Robinson Minority Scholarship through generous gifts to Lewis & Clark Law School.
To commemorate the Judge Roosevelt Robinson’s 70th birthday, his friends and colleagues are coming together to raise funds for this important scholarship. Please join us for this celebration!
To date, eight students have received this scholarship. Each recipient has demonstrated superior integrity and high ethical standards, excellent scholarship during law school and a caring attitude towards others.
Judge Robinson overcame difficult circumstances to touch the lives of all who knew him. By continuing to support this important scholarship, we are preserving his legacy and increasing diversity in the Oregon legal community.
By increasing the scholarship’s endowed fund, the law school can award a larger scholarship to one deserving student or increase the number of recipients to two each year.
