NCAWA provides scholarships to deserving female students attending the state’s law schools.  This award has been named in honor of retired Chief Justice Sarah Parker of the Supreme Court of North Carolina. 

In past years, the North Carolina Association of Women Attorneys (NCAWA) offered the Sarah Parker Scholarship Awards to a deserving female student at each law school in North Carolina.  In academic year 2018-2019, NCAWA began offering two (2) Sarah Parker Scholarship Awards, each in the amount of $2,000, to two female students from North Carolina’s law schools.  Scholarship recipients are leaders and/or active in their law schools and communities.  Scholarship recipients are students who best exemplify, in their approach to the study and future practice of law, the incorporation of NCAWA’s goals of assuring the effective participation of women in the justice system and in public office, promoting the rights of women under the law and promoting and improving the administration of justice.

Prospective scholarship recipients must be law school students who are continuing their education through the fall of the current calendar year and cannot be graduating third year law students.
