Schmutz Fellowship

John F. Schmutz Corporate and Business Law Institute Fellowship

Through the generosity of John F. Schmutz, Esquire, and his wife Eileen, the Widener Institute of Corporate and Business Law is pleased to be able to offer the John F. Schmutz Corporate and Business Law Institute Fellowship Award.  The Fellowship includes a scholarship and is awarded each year to a current law student who is either (a) a member of the the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law, or (b) enrolled in the Business Organizations Law Certificate Program.

The Schmutz fellow is responsible for helping to promote and organize the Institute’s activities.  Generally, the Fellowship recipient will help organize the Pileggi Lecture and the Annual Symposium, in addition to working closely with Professor Hamermesh, Ruby R. Vale Professor of Corporate and Business Law at Widener’s Institute of Delaware Corporate Law.  The Schmutz fellow also assists with the development of the Institute’s website and provides occasional research assistance for Institute faculty.
