In August 2022, scholarship funds were extended again by Cytowski & Partners to support financial aid for the third batch of Central and Eastern European (CEE) students and academics studying for advanced degrees at Stanford Law School. This support was provided in memory of Marcel Konigsberg, a blind Polish Jewish lawyer and alumnus of Jan Kazimierz University, in Lviv, who died during the Holocaust.
The financial aid fund is available to CEE students for the 2022–23 academic year and is a continuation of the firm’s commitment, which started in August 2020.
The scholarship has been extended this year to Ukrainian students. Students from the following countries will be eligible for the scholarship: Albania, Belarus, Bosnia & Hercegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
CEE students who have secured admission to Stanford Law School and have demonstrated financial need are eligible for fellowship funding to pursue advanced degrees, including the highly selective Masters of Laws Program (LLM) and Doctor of the Science of Law (JSD) program. These are the most advanced degrees conferred by the law school.
By providing these scholarship funds, Cytowski & Partners intends to encourage future CEE legal leaders interested in understanding the dynamics of law, science and technology and looking to explore legal innovation created in the Bay Area. As with the other scholarships at Stanford, admissions and aid decisions are made exclusively and independently by Stanford Law School.
With pride and honor we are happy to support the peoples and nations of CEE at Stanford Law. Surgite eamus!
