The Brandeis Association of Queens County Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to Jewish law students currently in the 2nd or 3rd year of study at the time of submission.

This scholarship fund is given to further the long and considerable contributions by the many Jewish Legal Professionals of the Borough of Queens through the years who have worked tirelessly to uphold the standards and ethics of our time-honored profession.

This scholarship is given to worthy applicants annually in the name of these past members of the Brandeis Association.
