Law firms, corporations and individual alumni and friends have joined the College of Law in the Book Award Program, created to generate unrestricted contributed funds for the College, and to recognize the academic achievements of law students. Sponsors contribute $3,000 for each of five years to support a Book Award in a designated area. Book Award contributions are fully tax deductible.
Book Award payments may be made annually, quarterly, monthly or according to whatever schedule is most convenient for the sponsor. All payments are to be made within the fiscal year recognized by the College of Law (July 1-June 30). Contributions are used for enrichment in a variety of College of Law programs, including scholarships, student organizations, faculty development and alumni activities.
For further information about the Book Award Program, or courses from which you may make your selection, contact Becky B. Shepherd, Director of Alumni Affairs & Annual Fund at (850) 644-0231 or (800) 788-7097.
