Law School: Wyss Scholars Promote Land Conservation

Lewis & Clark Law School students interested in land conservation issues will continue to be eligible for financial support through the Wyss Scholars Program as a result of a renewed $215,000 grant from the Wyss Foundation.

Lewis & Clark Law School is one of only a handful of law schools selected for the Wyss Scholars Program. Funded by the Wyss Foundation, a private charitable foundation dedicated to land conservation, the Wyss Scholars Program seeks to identify and support a new generation of leaders focused on land conservation issues.

The law school’s 2022 recipients are Glenda Valdez JD ’23 and Casey Bage JD ’23. They will each receive a $5,000 stipend for qualifying work in the summer of their second year of law school, a contribution toward tuition for their third year of law school, and two postgraduate payments if they end up working in a qualifying position.
