McClain Scholarship

William A. McClain Scholarship Fund

The Cincinnati Bar Foundation established a “Designated Justice Fund” in tribute to William A. McClain, for a scholarship in his name to be awarded by the Black Lawyers Association of Cincinnati. This restricted fund will use its income to award an annual scholarship to an African-American/Black student and Hamilton County, Ohio resident attending any ABA accredited law school. The scholarship will be awarded jointly with the Black Lawyers Association of Cincinnati (BLAC). The BLAC will select the recipient based on demonstrated leadership potential and dedication to the community. This scholarship is an appropriate tribute to Judge McClain, who has inspired and befriended young attorneys establishing themselves in the legal profession.  Unless designated by the contributor, no donations to the Cincinnati Bar Foundation will be added to the William A. McClain Scholarship Fund, other than by board resolution.  The board of trustees, by resolution, reserves the right to use principal to support purposes stated, if necessary.
