Ryan Schermerhorn Wins Future Leaders Scholarship
Alexandria, Va. (March 25, 2009)—Ryan Schermerhorn, currently attending law school at DePaul University in Chicago, IL, has been named the first recipient of Patent Resources Group’s Future Leaders Scholarship.
Patent Resources Group, the nation’s leading patent education firm, will award Mr. Schermerhorn with full tuition to its Patent Bar Review course, travel and hotel costs, as well as reimbursement for the fee charged by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to become a patent agent. The scholarship is valued at more than $5,000.
Criteria for the scholarship were based solely on the applicants’ merit, including demonstrated achievement in law school and undergraduate studies, letters of recommendation, and a 10-page essay on the “Future of Patent Law.”

Ryan’s application stood out for its high quality and attention to the issues facing our industry,” says Vanessa Brown, Patent Resources Group’s Vice President. “It is our honor to help advance Ryan’s career by awarding him the invaluable instruction that he will need to join the ranks of the nation’s elite patent professionals.”
