Roosevelt Robinson Minority Scholarship Fund

Increasing diversity in the Oregon legal community                              

As a community leader, former prosecutor, respected judge, and belovedRoosevelt Robinson Photo 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 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.

Each of the prior recipients 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.
