Crowe & Dunlevy Establishes OU Scholarship Program

Crowe & Dunlevy has established a $60,000 scholarship program to benefit minority students at the University of Oklahoma College of Law. The Crowe & Dunlevy Scholars Program was announced by Andrew M. Coats, dean of the OU law school, and Jimmy K. Goodman, president of Crowe & Dunlevy. Two members of the incoming class of 2006 will be awarded a $2,000-per-year stipend for each of their three years at the OU College of Law. Crowe & Dunlevy's initial commitment to the Scholars Program totals $60,000. With each successive incoming class, two more scholarships will be awarded to minority students with demonstrated academic achievement and need. In addition to receiving a total of $6,000 in scholarships, the scholars will be included in monthly Crowe & Dunlevy luncheons to help them develop professional contacts and provide them with mentorship opportunities. The concept for the Scholars Program was developed by Crowe & Dunlevy's William H. Hoch III after he participated in a Job Fair sponsored by the OU College of Law and the Black Law Student Association. See Source (Excerpts)
