The Stanfield Scholarships Program is funded by a trust created by Mrs. Marion Barr Stanfield for Unitarian Universalists studying in the fields of art or law. Mrs. Stanfield stated that the Stanfield Scholarship committee should take into consideration, "Not only the intellectual attainments and potentialities of the beneficiaries but that they consider whether in character and constructive spiritual philosophy the beneficiaries are most likely to use their legal training and their training in art for the betterment of humankind."
Criteria for recipients include an active relationship with Unitarian Universalism, financial need, and enrollment in an accredited institution. The recipient of each scholarship will be a person whom the committee believes will promote Unitarian Universalist values in the larger world.
Scholarships are awarded for one year; however students may reapply each year if they wish to continue receiving financial assistance.
Otto M. Stanfield Law Scholarship
