Tulane Law School is pleased to announce Aaron Stultz Heishman, a third-year law student at Tulane, has been awarded a $2500 scholarship from the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation (EMLF).
The EMLF Scholarship program is open to all students attending a law school which is a member of the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation. This year there were 39 applicants – double the number from 2008 – from the 24 EMLF member law schools. Awards are based on academic achievement and the student’s potential to contribute to the field of energy and natural resources law. A scholarship committee comprised of law professors and practitioners reviews the applications and then meets to determine the recipients and the allocation of the scholarship money. The scholarship program is announced in the spring of each year, and the scholarship recipients are announced at the EMLF Annual Institute.
In the 25 years since the Eastern Mineral Law Foundation established the Law Student Scholarship program with a $2000 budget, $327,800 in scholarships have now been awarded to students attending EMLF member law schools.
