An inaugural four-person group of Greene Public Service Scholars has been established at Howard University, thanks to a $10 million award from the Jerome L. Greene Foundation.
The grant, announced recently by the Howard University School of Law, will go toward the creation and support of the Greene Public Service Scholars Program on campus for development of a partnership between the foundation and Howard law school.
The initiative aims to invest in the future of American society by providing support to highly qualified Black lawyers committed to public service, Howard said in a statement.
“Howard University School of Law is enormously thankful to the Jerome L. Greene Foundation for this grant to create the Greene Public Service Scholars Program,” said Danielle Holley-Walker, dean of the Howard University School of Law. “This gift, the largest in law school history, goes to the heart of Howard law’s mission to create a generation of new attorneys who are lawyer-leaders deeply committed to public service.”
