Thank you to John Smagula, Assistant Dean of Temple University School of Law, for an excellent presentation on the scholarship available for RGSL students to study towards their Masters degree at Temple Law. The information session about this opportunity was held online on 18 January.
The deadline for applications is 20 February, and our 3rd year Bachelor and Masters programme’s students are welcome to submit their applications with a motivation letter detailing their interest in continuing their studies at Temple Law in the 2023/24 academic year to RGSL Director Ieva Rācenāja e-mail: ieva.racenaja(abols)rgsl.edu.lv
The scholarship for one year of study at Temple University’s LL.M. programme is granted by Mr. John Medveckis, honorary consul of Latvia to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and president of the J.J. Medveckis Foundation. The scholarship will cover full tuition and most living expenses in the United States.
The benefactor wants to support a RGSL student with strong academic credentials, who would not otherwise be able to afford to study in the United States. This person should be able to serve as a diplomatic bridge between Latvia and the United States, and be willing to promote the culture of philanthropy in Latvia by expressing gratitude publicly for this opportunity.
Temple University School of Law is the professional graduate law school of Temple University, located in Philadelphia. Founded in 1895, the law school has an enrollment of nearly 1,000 students. RGSL students will be eligible to earn the Master of Laws (LL.M.) for Foreign-Trained Lawyers under this scholarship program.
