The Bankruptcy Judges Memorial Scholarship Fund

From 1988 to 2019, the Bankruptcy and Commercial Law Section of the ACBA awarded scholarships in honor of Judge Gerald K. Gibson each year to deserving bankruptcy law students from the University of Pittsburgh and Duquesne University Schools of Law who demonstrate an interest in the practice of bankruptcy law and excellence in their bankruptcy coursework.

In keeping with, and hoping to expand this tradition, in early 2020, the Section established the Bankruptcy Judges’ Memorial Scholarship Award Fund with the Allegheny County Bar Foundation (“ACBF”), which honors all of our former Bankruptcy Judges. The award will continue to honor deserving Pitt and Duquesne law students. Your financial support of this new Scholarship Fund will be instrumental to its success. The goal is to raise at least $50,000, which will permit the Scholarship Fund to be permanent. Help us reach our goal.
