Howard T. Markey Memorial Scholarship


An award of $10,000 would honor the memory of Howard T. Markey, the first Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Like the other Fund scholarships, the award seeks out law students demonstrating academic promise, economic need, and an interest in the subject matter of the Federal CircuitÔÇÖs legal community. The Howard T. Markey scholarship also emphasizes a commitment to public service as a remembrance of Howard T. MarkeyÔÇÖs unique contribution of values driven by a lifetime committed to the public. Only one Howard T. Markey Memorial Scholarship is awarded each year. The award is presented at the AssociationÔÇÖs annual dinner in November.
