Hannah Clements ’20 Named Wyss Scholar
February 12, 2018
Hannah Clements ’20 is the second Wyss scholar to be selected at the law school.
The Wyss Foundation is a private, charitable organization dedicated to Western public lands issues, and its Scholars Program supports graduate-level education for the next generation of leaders in western land conservation. In 2017, the Wyss Foundation selected Lewis & Clark as one of the first law schools to be included in its program.
Clements’ goal is to become “a powerful environmental advocate.” Her determination has been demonstrated by her top grades, leadership, and career path.
As a Wyss scholar, Clements will receive a stipend for a summer position with a nonprofit or public sector conservation organization dedicated to the intermountain West, membership in the Wyss Scholars network, generous tuition assistance for her 3L year, ability to apply for a Wyss Scholars’ Small Grants Program to propose professional development events, and two postgraduation payments upon starting in a qualified career position.
