WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The National Creditors Bar Association (NCBA) today announced that Barron & Newburger, P.C. will sponsor an annual Scholarship, pledging $50,000 over five years to the NCBA Foundation. Funds will support a $10,000 per year college scholarship. Application forms can be found at creditorsbar.org/scholarship.
Established in 2022, the NCBA Foundation was created to guide and complement the charitable initiatives of the National Creditors Bar Association. It is the mission of the Foundation to support financial, civic, and judicial literacy programs and programs dedicated to promoting equitable access to opportunity. As part of its mission, the Foundation continues the NCBA tradition of awarding annual scholarships.
This scholarship, generously sponsored by the Barron & Newburger, P.C. Foundation, reflects NCBA’s commitment to investing in the education and future success of individuals within our legal community.
“Barron & Newburger remains committed to providing equal opportunity to all students looking to further their education,” said Thomas Good, President and Chief Executive Officer of Barron & Newburger, P.C. “Partnering with NCBA, an association with a strong appreciation of community, allows us to give back by supporting educational and economic growth within our industry.”
Each year the scholarship application will include a timely industry relevant question. The 2024 industry essay question is: “Do restrictions on collection and credit reporting of medical debts affect the availability, cost, and quality of medical services and treatment?” NCBA encourages applicants to be creative and thoughtful in their submissions. A panel of judges, including the NCBA Foundation and Awards & Scholarship Committees, will evaluate the submissions based on originality, clarity, and insight of the subject matter.
“NCBA is thrilled to be able to continue this great program and appreciates Barron & Newberger’s generosity to make it all possible,” said Liz Terry, NCBA Executive Director. “Their support not only alleviates the financial burden for students but encourages recipients to become independent thinkers.”
Scholarships will be awarded in May 2024. All applications are due no later than April 4, 2024. For more information visit: creditorsbar.org/scholarship.
