Scholarship at the University of Oklahoma Law Center named for longtime Crowe paralegal
Oklahoma-based Crowe & Dunlevy law firm has committed to an annual gift of $1,000 to fund a newly established scholarship in honor of B. Jo Balding and her more than 50 years as a paralegal with the firm.
The Crowe & Dunlevy B. Jo Balding Scholarship for Students in the Legal Assistant Education Program at the University of Oklahoma Law Center will assist a University of Oklahoma Law Center student enrolled in the Legal Assistant Education program. The scholarship will help the student progress one step closer to their career in the legal field.
“Crowe & Dunlevy is proud to establish this scholarship in honor of Jo and her outstanding service to our firm,” said Kevin Gordon, president of Crowe & Dunlevy. “This scholarship reflects her impeccable career and work ethic. We hope the recipient of this scholarship is able to replicate those same qualities in their career.”
The Crowe & Dunlevy Foundation began providing financial support to charities and nonprofit organizations in 1985. The B. Jo Balding Scholarship strives to help students create a legacy of their own in the legal field.
To qualify, applicants must be enrolled in the Legal Assistant Education program at the University of Oklahoma Law Center, must be in academic good standing, with at least a 3.0 grade point average for his/her most recent term (high school or college) at application submission, and must fully complete the application with all required documents on or before the scholarship deadline of Nov. 15, 2013.
