Kentucky Bar Foundation Grants Support Kentucky Law Students

As part of the Kentucky Bar Foundation's commitment to improving the legal profession, the KBF has proudly supported the legal education of many Kentucky students. Since 1988, the KBF has awarded grants totaling over $300,000 to provide scholarships that assist and encourage students attending Kentucky law schools and provide opportunities to enrich their education.

Andrew Johnson is a third-year student at Northern Kentucky University’s Chase College of Law.  Andrew has been the recipient of a full-tuition diversity scholarship, funded through the law school’s general scholarship fund, for all three years of his legal education.  The annual, generous gifts from the Kentucky Bar Foundation, together with the gifts of other friends and alumni, provide an important source of funding for the College of Law’s general scholarship fund.

Andrew’s scholarship has enabled him to focus on his coursework, succeed academically, earn top clerking experiences, and serve as a leader at the College of Law.  He is ranked within the top ten percent of his class. He worked as a summer law clerk in the Macy’s Inc. Law Department during his first summer at Chase and as a summer associate at the law firm of Frost Brown Todd LLC during his second summer.  Andrew recently accepted an offer from Frost Brown Todd to join the firm as an associate after graduation.  Additionally, he serves as the President of the Student Bar Association, the Academic Chair of the Black Law Students Association, and a member of the Chase Public Interest Group.

Andrew is also the recipient of Chase College of Law’s prestigious Toyota Diversity Scholarship which provides a stipend for his living and educational expenses in excess of his tuition scholarship.  A resident of Highland Heights, Kentucky, Andrew is from Canada and earned his Honours Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto.

The Kentucky Bar Foundation is proud to have supported Andrew and many other students like him through grants that encourage hardworking students to succeed in law school and beyond.
