Affording Opportunity: Alumni & Friends Create Scholarship for Law Students to Honor President Reveley

President Taylor ReveleyWith William & Mary President Taylor Reveley set to retire in 2018 after 20 years of service to the university, the Marshall-Wythe School of Law Foundation established the W. Taylor Reveley III Law Scholarship. Gifts from alumni and friends made to the scholarship endowment will honor his many contributions to the William & Mary community, first as Dean of the Law School and then as William & Mary President. Income from the endowment will be used to provide need-based scholarships to students in the J.D. program.

Private support for student scholarships plays an increasingly vital role in the Law School's ability to attract the most outstanding students. Financial assistance is often the deciding factor for applicants. In the $75 million For the Bold campaign to ensure the Law School’s future, our top priority is scholarships.

If you are interested in making a gift to support the scholarship, please contact the Law School’s Office of Development and Alumni Affairs at (757) 221-3795.
