Workman Nydegger is pleased to announce the formation of the Workman Nydegger Scholarship for Women in Engineering and the Workman Nydegger Scholarship for Women in Science and Technology. The scholarships will be offered to junior and senior female students at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University. Both universities have agreed to match the scholarship amounts contributed by the firm.
Workman Nydegger will award a total of four scholarships in each semester schedule (fall and winter or equivalent), for a total of eight scholarships per calendar year. Through a combination of demonstrated achievements and written essays submitted by the students, Workman Nydegger attorneys will work closely with both universities’ scholarship committees to identify the exceptional and promising female undergraduate candidates.
These scholarship programs represent Workman Nydegger’s commitment to helping women succeed in their engineering or science training. The firm hopes to provide women with an understanding of the many career opportunities available to women with science and engineering backgrounds and an interest in intellectual property law as a career path. Workman Nydegger anticipates its scholarship efforts will help to ensure clients have continual access to outstanding intellectual property advice and guidance from legal professionals with strong technical experience and a variety of backgrounds.
