The Kennedy T. Friend Scholarship Fund
The Kennedy T. Friend Scholarship Fund was established by the will of Kennedy T. Friend, a distinguished member of the Bar of Allegheny County who died in London, England, on May 26, 1929. The terms of Mr. Friend’s will state that the balance of the income of the trust “shall be devoted to the education at Yale University…or the University of Paris, France, of such child, or children of the members of the Bar of Allegheny County as may be designated by the said Trustees, or their successors…” Any child of an attorney who is a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association, and/or who has their principal practice in Allegheny County, is eligible for this scholarship if they chose to attend Yale University or the University of Paris, France.
Children of members of the Allegheny County Bar Association and nonmember Allegheny County attorneys – those having their principal office in Allegheny County – who desire to attend either Yale University or the University of Paris, France are urged to take advantage of the assistance offered by the Kennedy T. Friend Scholarship Fund. The applications for the scholarships should be submitted at the same time as the admission application is made to Yale University or the University of Paris. For further information regarding the grants for either undergraduate or graduate study, please contact David Gordon, Institutional Trust Officer, at [email protected] or 412-762-9965.
