The Foundation’s diversity scholarships, including the Giles S. Rich Scholarship, are to benefit diverse outstanding law school students in the New York area. The NYIPLEF also periodically grants scholarships to students, professors, institutions or others based in the New York area that have made a significant contribution to the promotion of intellectual property law.
