D. Augustus Straker Bar Foundation, Inc.


The D. Augustus Straker Bar Foundation awards scholarships for African American students seeking financial assistance in the pursuit of a degree in law. There is one scholarship will be awarded at the Straker Bar Association Corporate Counsel Breakfast, and one or more scholarships will be awarded at the Straker Bar Association’s Annual Trailblazer Award and Scholarship Dinner. Our first scholarships were presented at the 1999 Trailblazer's Dinner, and through the fundraising efforts of the Straker Bar Association. Since that time, we have awarded well over $100,000 to law students.
