Winnie McLaughlin Scholarship

The NHWBA, in partnership with University of New Hampshire School of Law, created an endowment to support an academic scholarship awarded to a second year woman law student each year. The scholarship is named after Agnes Winifred McLaughlin, the first woman admitted to practice law in New Hampshire on June 30, 1917.

The award criteria include:

  • Demonstrated academic achievement  (3.0 GPA or better)*
  • Community Service focused on advancing women in society, and
  • Demonstrated financial need

This collaboration between the NHWBA and the University of New Hampshire School of Law is intended to attract talented women law students to the New Hampshire legal community who might otherwise accept offers from schools providing better scholarship packages.

We congratulate our current and past scholarship recipients:

Andrea Christensen
Karinne Brobst
Emelia (Smallidge) Galdieri
Barbara Bedard
Jessica Allsop
Lindsay (Whitelaw) Nadeau
Allison Fusco
Lyndsay Robinson
Christine Hilliard
Katharine Courville

*This requirement may be modified in the discretion of the committee.
