The Fred C. Scribner Fellowships


The Fred C. Scribner, Jr. 1930 Fellowship was established as a gift from the law firm of Pierce, Atwood, Scribner, Allen, Smith and Lancaster of Portland, Maine in honor of Mr. Scribner’s 80th Birthday.  The fellowship will be awarded to a senior graduating from Dartmouth College.  In keeping with Mr. Scribner's wishes, first preference is to be given to Dartmouth seniors from the State of Maine, then seniors from another state.

The Fred C. Scribner, Jr. and James H. Hamlen Fund was established as a gift from James H. Hamlen. The award is to be given to a graduating senior as he/she enrolls in an accredited law school.  Preference is to be given to Dartmouth seniors from the state of Maine.



Any graduating senior at Dartmouth College who has a record of outstanding academic achievement and is intending to attend an accredited law school.
