The A. J. and Peggy Waechter Scholarship Fund is an endowed fund established for scholarship support of Tulane Law students. Preference is given to Louisiana residents, to students demonstrating active community service in years prior to being admitted to law school, and to students demonstrating outstanding academic accomplishment. Recipients are to be chosen by committee from a small group of students recommended through the admission process. Arthur Joseph Waechter, Jr. graduated from Tulane University and Tulane Law School and served on board of administrators of Tulane University. His family, colleagues and friends established this scholarship after his death in 2001 to honor his dedication to his law firm, Tulane University and his community. Waechter Scholars will be encouraged to continue their community service as recipients of this scholarship.
