2021-2022 Scholarship Recipients

As part of its mission to foster the study of energy and mineral law, the EMLF annually awards scholarships to students attending EMLF member law schools. Composed of law professors and practicing attorneys, the scholarship committee has the difficult task of choosing the recipients from a number of qualified applicants representing member law schools. The students were selected by the Scholarship Committee, comprised of: Nicolle Bagnell, Reed Smith; Buzz Bellville, Appalachian School of Law; Dick Emens, Emens Wolper; Frank Harrington, Alpha Metallurgical Resources; Melanie Kilpatrick, Williams Kilpatrick; Blake Klinkner, Washburn University; Tom Lane, Bowles Rice; Joseph Reinhart, Babst Calland; and Ernest Smith, University of Texas. Joe Reinhart chaired the committee this year.

EMLF Law Student Scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year totaled $29,000, and were awarded to 11 students. Unless noted, all awards are from the general scholarship fund. To date, over $700,000 in scholarships has been awarded.  Applications are solicited from member law schools in the spring of each year.
