ChIPs is delighted to announce that Noreen Krall, one of the seven founders of ChIPs, has donated $25,000 to its scholarship fund. The fund, which started in 2018, was created in memory of Rachel Krevans by Morrison and Forrester to support law school students.
“I am delighted to support the continuation and expansion of the ChIPs scholarship program,” said Noreen Krall. “Over the past few years, our scholarships have made a significant contribution to the next generation of women in intellectual property law.”
“ChIPs has donated more than $25,000 in scholarships in the past 4 years. Noreen’s contribution will help us expand the reach and impact of the program,” said Joan Toth, Executive Director of ChIPs. “Our 2022 plans include larger donations to more students.”
Applications for the scholarship will be open on February 1, 2022. The scholarship fund was established to encourage women to pursue careers in intellectual property law. It is awarded annual to an academically qualified female law student entering her third or subsequent year of law school who has demonstrated an interest in IP law and a commitment to ChIPs’ mission of advancing and connecting women in technology, law, and policy. The award is paid to the student’s school to be used for tuition.
