Schetroma Travel Scholarships to Nashville for Law Students
Students at EMLF member law schools are eligible to apply for reimbursement for travel and lodging expenses to attend the Annual Institute at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel. The late Russ Schetroma, an oil and gas lawyer from Meadville, PA, established a trust fund so that law students could more easily attend the Annual Institutes and become involved in the EMLF.
If you are a law student currently enrolled at an EMLF member law school, you are eligible to apply for reimbursement of transportation costs to Nashville by car or plane, up to three nights at Marriott’s Renaissance Nashville Hotel, and a $200 meals stipend.
