Henry C. McDougal Northwest Missouri Legal Scholarship Fund

The Henry C. McDougal Northwest Missouri Legal Scholarship Fund grants scholarships to deserving law students from northwest Missouri. In 1992, Helen Roosevelt founded the scholarship in her grandfather’s name. Henry McDougal was from northwest Missouri and served as president of The Missouri Bar in 1894.

Each year, one or more students receive the scholarship. Recipients of the scholarship must be from northwest Missouri and attending one of the four accredited law schools in Missouri. Applicants who meet these requirements are judged based on academic scholarship and financial need. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis but must be received before July 1st in order to be considered for the following academic year. The Trustees of the Missouri Bar Foundation select the recipients in July each year.
