The Roxana Arsht Fellowship is soliciting eligible candidates for a three-year financial stipend.

The women and the law section and the Delaware State Bar Association founded the Roxana C. Arsht Fellowship in November 1998 to encourage law students, recent law school graduates and attorneys newly admitted to the Delaware bar to pursue careers in the nonprofit 
sector in Delaware, according to a release.

In an effort to encourage attorneys to work in nonprofit positions, regardless of financial considerations, the fellowship offers financial assistance for three years to each recipient selected.

For 2018, the fellowship committee will accept applications from Aug. 15 through Oct. 16. A decision is scheduled to be announced by Dec. 15 with one award being approved.

The amount of the award will vary each year as it is based on the annual interest earned by the fellowship fund, a release said.
