The FCBA Foundation Amy Zoslov Law School Scholarship

(Available only to Case Western Reserve University Law Students)

The FCBA Foundation Amy Zoslov Law School Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to rising second or third year students currently enrolled at Case Western University who have a demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in communications law.

Applicants must have demonstrated strength of character, leadership skills, superior academic achievement, and/or other valuable life experiences that merit recognition.  In addition, the successful candidate must have demonstrated a strong interest in and dedication to public service generally or communications-related public policy specifically.  This is a merit-based scholarship.

Amy J. Zoslov died from breast cancer in August 2000 at the age of 42.  Known to members of the FCBA and the communications industry as a dedicated public servant, Amy spent nearly her entire career with the Federal Communications Commission.  Amy earned her B.A. from Boston University in 1980 and her J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law in 1983.  The scholarship fund was established in Amy’s memory by her family and friends, the FCC staff, and telecommunications industry donors.  Maintained for a number of years by CTIA’s The Wireless Foundation, “The Amy Fund” is now administered by the FCBA Foundation.  The FCBA Foundation will award scholarships in Amy’s name to deserving students who exhibit the same personal strengths and professional promise that Amy demonstrated.

The application for the scholarship is now available and can be accessed at https://webportalapp.com/sp/fcbalawscholarship_19.  The deadline for submission of applications is Sunday, March 31, 2019.  The Foundation plans to notify successful applicants regarding their scholarship awards by mid-May.
