LBF Awards $59,000 in 2017-18 Kids' Chance Scholarships

The Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF) Kids’ Chance Scholarship program is awarding $59,000 in scholarships to 20 students. Scholarships are awarded to dependent children of Louisiana workers killed or permanently and totally disabled in an accident compensable under a state or federal Workers’ Compensation Act or law. 

Care Packets for Kids

During the week committee members gathered to put together care packets for the current scholarship recipients. Generous donations from law firms helped fill the boxes with supplies, snacks, gift cards and other goodies to get them through finals week.

The Louisiana Bar Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity organized under the state of Louisiana.
