Dennis Huebner Pre-Law Stipend
Lawrence University is pleased to announce the availability of the Dennis Huebner Pre-Law Stipend, established in 2000 in honor and memory of Mr. Dennis Huebner ’96. The stipend can offset or cover expenses related to exploring or pursuing opportunities related to a career in the legal profession. Dennis Huebner of Necedah, Wisconsin graduated from Lawrence in 1996 with a degree in government and an intent to study law to prepare for a career in politics and government. Following his tragic death in 1999 an anonymous donor created the fund in his memory. For more information, please contact Kia Thao, pre-professional advising and fellowships, in the CLC.

Summer Volunteer Opportunity Grant (SVOG)
Sponsored by the Center for Community Engagement and Social Change (CESC), this funding provides financial assistance for students participating in service projects as learning experiences during the summer months. SVOG funding is available to assist with the practical expenses for service projects. Because the CESC recognizes the financial demands of a Lawrence University education, part of the funding is also intended to offset the opportunity cost of a summer spent engaged in volunteer and service work. Although the grant itself helps to remove financial barriers to summer service, the SVOG program also seeks to enhance and develop the individual student learning imperative as well as the Lawrence community’s broader understanding of service. To that end, recipients are encouraged to link service work and academic inquiry and expected to engage themselves and the campus community in a consideration of social, legal, political, and other issues pertinent to their service project.
