Scholarship Details:

Ruth Bader Ginsberg, or "Notorious RBG" as she has been coined by Shana Knizhnik, was an American icon of epic proportions. As remembered by the American Bar Association, "It is undeniable that the late Justice Ginsburg transformed the legal profession, the Supreme Court, and the fabric of American society through her tireless advocacy for gender equity. She was a brilliant legal scholar who left a mark on American jurisprudence both in her role on the Court and as an advocate." NSHSS hopes to honor the blazing legacy of "Notorious RBG" by awarding ten (10) applicants with $1,000 each for their efforts to embody the spirit of RBG within their own communities.

Application Requirements:

  • Educator recommendation
  • Prompt response of 500-800 words to the following question:
    • Ruth Bader Ginsberg stated, "As women achieve power, the barriers will fall. As society sees what women can do, as women see what women can do, there will be more women out there doing things, and we’ll all be better off for it... As we connect and collaborate, give and take, we are evolving, emerging stronger and more capable." Please give one example of how you embody the spirit of RBG to be notorious for your power in your community.
