* Since 1987, the USF School of Law Women Lawyers Committee has awarded its Scholarship for Transitional Students to a USF School of Law student who has had a five-year gap in her/his education before law school, is transitioning from another profession into law, has financial need, and plans to give back to the community. This year’s award of $14,000 is a record, but only covers 28% of Mario’s tuition of $49,820.
