When There Are Nine Scholarship Project

The When There Are Nine Scholarship Project was established in 2020 in partnership with the Federal Bar Foundation by a group of women attorneys who served together as Assistant United States Attorneys in the Southern District of New York. The Project’s mission is to honor the lifelong work of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by creating a scholarship and related programming that will advance equity and diversity within the legal profession and continue the late Justice’s many efforts to expand career opportunities for women attorneys.


The 2023 When There Are Nine Scholarship Project Application
Period will open on April 1, 2023. Applications must be submitted by 11:59pm EST on May 1, 2023.
