A new program established by Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology will allow select Rose-Hulman graduates to study at the IU law school at a reduced tuition rate.
The Rose-Hulman Intellectual Property Law Scholars Program will offer at least two Rose-Hulman graduates admitted to the law school a scholarship amounting to 50 percent of annual tuition, plus access to a formal mentoring program and a research assistant position at the Center for Intellectual Property Research at IU.
According to a release from the law school, the scholarship will lower the cost of law school over three years by approximately $45,000 to $75,000, depending on the student’s residency and other factors.
“Intellectual property law is one of the fastest-growing areas of the profession,” said Austen L. Parrish, dean and James H. Rudy Professor of Law at the IU Maurer School of Law. “We have one of the strongest intellectual property law programs in the nation and are delighted to join forces with one of the country’s leading engineering schools in finding pathways for talented students to advance their professional interests."
"The Rose-Hulman Intellectual Property Law Scholars Program will create outstanding opportunities for students to gain a technical and legal education that will enable them to make significant contributions to an economy driven by technological innovation,” said Richard E. Stamper, dean of faculty and professor of engineering management and mechanical engineering.
Rose-Hulman will nominate current students or alumni for the program beginning with the class entering in the fall of 2014.
