Suffolk University Law School (Boston) is excited to announce the Thaddeus Alexander Kitchener Scholarship. This award will guarantee full-tuition scholarships at Suffolk Law for all students who are admitted to and enroll in a JD program at Suffolk Law in 2023, agree to commit to Suffolk Law via the Binding Early Decision HBCU Program, and have received their undergraduate degree by the time of enrollment at Suffolk Law from one of the historically Black colleges and universities (“HBCUs”) listed above.

Students who earn their bachelor’s degree from one of the HBCUs listed below and are admitted to start a JD program at Suffolk Law in 2023 will be awarded:
$35,000 per year in the full-time program, or
$25,000 per year in the part-time evening program.

Our hero, the late Congressman John Lewis, said that internet access is “the civil rights issue of the 21st Century.” A high-speed home broadband (internet) connection is vital for full enfranchisement in today’s world. It opens the door to educational and economic opportunities, connects family and church communities, allows access to remote health care services, and empowers greater civic engagement and activism.
Congress recently created an Emergency Broadband Benefit giving eligible families up to $50 per month to pay for home broadband service.You may be eligible for the Emergency Broadband Benefit if your household has experienced a sudden loss of income during the pandemic, or is currently receiving federal benefits such as SNAP, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance, Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit, Lifeline, Pell Grants, or free and reduced-price school lunches.
