Deadline Looms for Future Leaders Scholarship

Applications must be post-marked by February 27, 2009

Alexandria, Va. (February 20, 2009)-Law students looking to enter patent law may miss their window of opportunity to get a free boost to their careers. The March 6 deadline for entering the Future Leaders Scholarship is now only two weeks away, with mailed applications needing to be post-marked by February 27.

Launched last December, the Future Leaders Scholarship is open to all full-time law students who are eligible to sit for the Patent Bar examination. Winners receive full tuition to Patent Resources Group’s Patent Bar Review course, including travel and hotel costs, a value of more than $5,000.

“The Future Leaders Scholarship is the perfect opportunity for enterprising patent law students to launch their careers,” says Patent Resources Group’s Academic Director Paul Gardner. “The scholarship will not only equip recipients with the tools needed to pass the Patent Bar exam, but also to attain the highest levels of professional achievement.”

Once scholarship winners pass the Patent Bar exam, they will also be reimbursed for the patent agent fee charged by the U.S. Patent and Trade Office to become a patent agent.  Scholarship winners will be chosen based on proven academic achievement.

More information and a downloadable application are available at www.patentresources.com/scholarship.
