Walter H. Moses Sr. and Walter H. Moses Jr. Scholarship

The CBF Walter H. Moses Sr. and Walter H. Moses Jr. Scholarship was made possible by a gift from Eleanor Moses in memory of both her son and her late husband, a leading and highly respected member of the Chicago bar. Currently a $60,000 scholarship, it is awarded once every three years to one of the six Chicago-area law schools by rotation (Chicago-Kent College of Law, DePaul University College of Law, The John Marshall Law School, Loyola University Chicago School of Law, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law and University of Chicago Law School); the school then chooses the recipient. These funds, which are payable over three years, enable an incoming law student pursuing a public interest legal career to have a significant portion of his or her tuition covered by scholarship funding through the CBF.

Congratulations to the 2018 CBF Moses Scholar, Angela Kilgore.

Angela Kilgore graduated from Michigan State University in 2017 with a major in Anthropology and minor in Environmental Science. Following graduation, Angela returned home to Detroit, Michigan, where she served as a fellow with the AmeriCorps-sponsored Public Allies service program. As a fellow, Angela worked on causes related to early childhood reading levels as well as working to better the conditions of migrant communities throughout Metro Detroit.

In addition to working with Public Allies Metro Detroit, she coordinated programming aimed at assisting recent graduates with transitioning to school post graduation. She worked in conjunction with Michigan State University, University of Michigan, and the Detroit Public Library to offer various resources over the course of four weeks to recent graduates struggling with different aspects of “adulating”. It was through the success of this program that she was selected as the recipient of a highly prestigious grant award to expand the program.

Angela attends The John Marshall Law School, where she continues to explore her passion for law and fair justice for all.
