The Claude Mood Scarborough Fellowship for Civic Leadership
Thanks to contributions from his friends and colleagues, the Center supports up to three $1,500 fellowships per year in honor of Claude Mood Scarborough. The purpose of the fellowships are to encourage lawyers and law students to develop initiatives for improving the administration of justice, civic access to law and legal information, and professionalism in the practice of law.
