Arthur Mag Graduate Law Fellowship
In recognition of Arthur Mag's service to the
University of Kansas City
and UMKC, the Edward F. Swinney Trust has provided a grant for the
establishment of Arthur Mag graduate fellowships to support full-time
study at UMKC. Arthur Mag Fellows work closely with distinguished
professors in their graduate degree programs. These professors serve as
mentors throughout the fellows' graduate work.
One of these fellowships is
designated for the School of Law, and is provided each year to an
outstanding student in the School of Law's LL.M. program.
The Arthur Mag Graduate Fellowship in Law
includes a stipend of $10,500 for the 2006-2007 academic year;
remission on non-resident fees, if applicable; and remission of 18
hours of graduate law educational fees, for a total possible
compensation of nearly $28,000.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens who are planning to pursue the graduate program on a full-time basis.
More information, including a
"generic" application form that may be copied and used and a faculty
recommendation form, may be obtained/downloaded from the School of
Graduate Studies Web site at: http://sgs.umkc.edu/financial.asp#arthur.
