Henry C. McDougal Northwest Missouri Legal Scholarship Fund

In late 1992, the Missouri Bar Foundation received $100,000 from the estate of Ms. Helen Roosevelt to establish a legal scholarship fund in the name of Ms. Roosevelt's grandfather, Henry C. McDougal. Mr. McDougal was from northwest Missouri and president of The Missouri Bar in 1894.

The earnings from the scholarship fund are used to provide one or more scholarships to students attending one of Missouri's accredited law schools. Recipients must be a resident of northwest Missouri, which is defined to include the following counties: Atchison, Nodaway, Holt, Worth, Gentry, Andrew, Dekalb, Clinton, Clay, Buchanan, Platte, Jackson, Lafayette, Ray, Caldwell, Daviess, Harrison, Mercer, Grundy, Livingston and Carroll.

Among the most important factors considered by the Trustees of the Missouri Bar Foundation in granting scholarships to northwest Missouri residents to attend a Missouri law school is academic scholarship and financial need.

Applications for scholarship from the McDougal Fund may be submitted at any time, however, the Trustees of the Missouri Bar Foundation normally selects scholarship recipients annually in June and, accordingly, applications should be submitted prior to June 1 annually, in order to be considered during the meeting specifically scheduled for this purpose.
