Endowment Supports Burke Scholars

As part of Case Western Reserve University’s comprehensive financial aid program—ranked fifth in the nation by Business Insider—the Coleman P. Burke Center for Environmental Law offers scholarships to outstanding applicants in environmental law.

In less than two years, the Environmental Law Center has awarded more than $1.5 million in scholarships to 13 “Burke Scholars”—exceptional students demonstrating a strong interest in environmental law. The scholarships are made possible by the Burke Center’s $10 million endowment, a gift to the law school of the late Coleman Burke, who wanted to ensure that generations of students interested in environmental law would have the means to enroll at CWRU and follow their dream careers.
