Santa Cruz, CA – March 2, 2015 – Mitchel L. Winick, President and Dean of Monterey College of Law (MCL) announced that MCL will provide a full-tuition law school scholarship for one alumnus of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Cruz for each of the next 10 years. Any former member of the Club who meets the standard entry requirements of MCL may apply. The amount of individual scholarships shall be the equivalent of the full cost of tuition, up to approximately $75,000, to MCL for the Master of Legal Studies (“MLS”) or the Juris Doctor (“JD”) degree programs.
“As a community law school founded in 1972, we share an important mission with the Boys & Girls Clubs by providing quality educational opportunities for local students,” Winick said.
“MCL’s opportunity education mission is an almost perfect extension of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Cruz’s academic philosophy which is to ensure that every member is reaching their fullest potential in school and in life. This incredible scholarship program not only represents an extraordinary opportunity for our past and current members, it aligns with our focus towards graduate school for the first time in the club’s history,” says Bob Langseth, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Cruz. According to Langseth, MCL’s commitment to Boys & Girls Club of Santa Cruz members represents one of the largest financial sponsorships in their 46 year history.
