DePaul Law alumni support scholarship initiative benefiting incoming students

DePaul University College of Law launched a fundraising initiative through Fall 2016 and Winter 2017 to increase the generosity of the scholarships benefiting incoming students. It is through initiatives like this that DePaul Law continues to strengthen its mission and enhance its reputation. Dean Rosato Perea would like to share important news with our community regarding this effort.

Dear College of Law alumni and friends,

I am thrilled to share some exciting news with you!

Back in September at the College of Law Alumni Reception, I announced a generous contribution from alumnae Younghee Ottley (JD 1982). In making this gift, Younghee challenged her fellow alumni to join her in supporting student scholarships at the College of Law.

Our goal was to raise $150,000 by February 1, 2017 to help provide enhanced scholarship awards to students admitted to the College of Law. I’m pleased to announce that we have surpassed our goal! As of February 9, 2017, we have received more than $175,000 from our generous alumni and friends. I thank you for answering the call to ensure promising students will be able to receive the excellent DePaul College of Law experience, with greater affordability.

If you haven’t had a chance to contribute to this initiative and would still like to do so, we welcome your support. You can make a gift by visiting​ and designating your support for the Law Student Scholarship Fund. If you’d prefer to pay by check, you may also send your gift to:

DePaul University
1 E. Jackson Blvd.
Chicago, IL 60604-2287
Attn: Advancement Gift Processing

Thank you so much for your support of the College of Law and its students; we are deeply grateful to your commitment to building the law school’s future one student at a time.

All my best,

Dean Jenn

The entire DePaul Law community would like to join Dean Rosato Perea in extending its gratitude to everyone who contributed to this initiative to build the future of DePaul Law.
