NEWBERRY, S.C. – Newberry College has entered into an educational agreement with the Charleston School of Law as part of a joint effort to expand opportunities for students interested in pursuing the study of law and to make those studies more affordable.
“We feel strongly this will be a good fit for Newberry College students,” said J. Edward Bell III, president of the Charleston School of Law.
The agreement, which goes into effect immediately, will award a $5,000 renewable scholarship to graduates of Newberry College who are admitted to the Charleston School of Law. The scholarship will be awarded to Newberry College graduates in addition to any other financial awards the student may receive.
“Partnerships of this nature offer our students and graduates a blended pathway to experience the best of both worlds,” said Newberry College President Dr. Maurice Scherrens, who is a strong advocate of graduate and professional school articulation agreements. “These agreements allow Newberry College students to experience all the advantages of receiving their undergraduate education at a small liberal arts college while gaining access to some of the finest graduate and professional schools in the country.”
