The William Verbon Black Scholarship
In 2007, Mrs. Delia Black endowed the William Verbon Black Scholarship. The scholarship honors the memory of William Verbon Black and assists full time students at the University of Alabama School of Law.
William Verbon Black, who died in 2000, was a graduate of the University of Alabama School of Law. He went on to become a Fellow of the National Institute of Public affairs and to graduate from Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government. His successful career in the federal service culminated with his appointment to the Senior Executive Service as Chief Counsel, U.S. Army Missile Command, one of the largest legal offices in Alabama. During his time as Chief Counsel, he received Presidential awards and recognition. The William Verbon Black Scholarship honors his distinguished career and the high ethical standards to which he adhered.
The Alabama Law Foundation administers the William Verbon Black Scholarship, and the University of Alabama School of Law chooses the recipients. Applicants should be in all respect superior. Alabama residents are given priority. Academic achievement is the key factor, but consideration is also given to consciousness, dependability, civic involvement, financial need and dedication to the highest ethical standards.
