NEW YORK (October 13, 2022) – The When There Are Nine Scholarship Project, a program established by alumnae of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) in partnership with the Federal Bar Council and Federal Bar Foundation, today announced its second class of women Scholars: Demi Moore, Kylie Mignat, and Ami Ishikawa. The four inaugural Scholars continue to receive financial assistance and mentorship bringing the total number of When There Are Nine Scholars to seven.
Established in late 2020, the When There Are Nine Scholarship Project honors the legacy of former U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by furthering her commitment to expanding career opportunities for women in the law and promoting equity and diversity in the legal profession.
“We are thrilled to announce our second cohort of Scholars for the When There Are Nine Scholarship Project,” said Rebecca Monck Ricigliano, one of the founders of the When There Are Nine Project, Steering Committee lead, and co-chair of the White Collar and Regulatory Enforcement Practice at Crowell & Moring, LLP. “The continued support of the Federal Bar Foundation, Federal Bar Council, and the Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney’s Office alumni community is key to the success of the Project and our ability to make a difference in the legal careers for our women Scholars.”
