The Judge Phyllis Kravitch Scholarship was established by the Savannah Bar Association in tribute to this outstanding community leader known for her character, integrity, and compassion. The fairness, patience, and wisdom of Judge Kravitch served as an inspiration not only to all lawyers and judges but also the community at large.
The purpose of this scholarship is to assist a rising second or third-year law school student from Chatham County in continuing his/her education at an accredited school of law. The scholarship award of $1,000 is given to one student based on merit for the second or third year of study in law school. A second-year law student who receives an award may apply for an additional award for his/her third year. The award granted may be used for tuition and fees, books, and other academic expenses. All applicants who have applied for or will be receiving other financial support must reveal that information with the application. The scholarship award will be sent to the law school for the recipient's account.
