The Bailey Scholarship is given annually to a first or second year law student attending a Florida law school who intends to practice in the Jacksonville area following graduation.
The scholarship is sponsored by the Financial News and Daily Record, a local business newspaper which is very active in the legal community and often publishes articles on legal affairs, as well as legal notices. The scholarship is intended to help defray law school tuition and related expenses.
The YLS advertises the award and distributes applications at all Florida law schools. Applications normally are solicited at the beginning of spring each year. The applications are then reviewed by members of the scholarship committee of the YLS and the publisher of the Financial News and Daily Record. Applicants are judged on such criteria as law school achievement and character, as well as need.
The scholarship funds are presented to the recipient at The Jacksonville Bar Association's annual meeting where the recipient, together with his or her family, are honored guests.
