Criminal Justice Section Book Scholarship.  The James E. Rogers College of Law is pleased to announce the availability of two scholarships from the Criminal Justice Section Book Scholarship Fund, which was established by the Criminal Justice Section of the State Bar of Arizona in 1994 to recognize one or more second- or third-year law students for achievement in the area of criminal justice.  The Criminal Justice Section Book Scholarship Fund will provide two scholarships for the 2003 - 2004 academic year.  Selection will be based upon the following criteria:  academic achievements in general; specific achievements in the area of criminal justice regarding class work, papers, clinics, clerkships, internships or other related experiences; future plans regarding work in the criminal justice system; explanation of source of interest in this area of the law; and statement of financial need.  A committee of representatives of the Criminal Justice Section of the State Bar will select the recipient or recipients based upon a review of written application materials as well as interviews with selected applicants if necessary.  Applications are now available in Room 118.  Deadline for return of completed applications:  November 3, 2003.

The Munger Prize for Scholars in International and Business Law.  The Munger Prize for Scholars in International and Business Law is awarded annually to a student based upon outstanding scholarship and enduring achievement in the areas of international and business law.  Enrolled law students and post-graduate students may apply for consideration for this award, which was made possible through the generosity of John F. and Roseann Munger, by submitting a letter of application, a resume, a transcript and two letters of reference to the Financial Services Office, Room 118 of the College.  Prize: $1,000.  Deadline for applications - November 15, 2003, at 5:00 P.M.
