Scholarship Application Process

The Senator Avon N. Williams, Jr. and Hon. Robert Lillard Law School Scholarships, established by the Napier-Looby Bar Foundation (NLBF), seek to provide not less than $1,000 to assist full-time law students of color at accredited law schools. The NLBF, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded by the membership of the Napier-Looby Bar Association (NLBA) in 2001 to raise funds for scholarships and charitable donations to benefit worthy organizations and persons of need in the African American and minority communities in Middle Tennessee. The Foundation names these Scholarships after the late Senator Avon N. Williams, Jr., a distinguished legislator, attorney and member of the NLBA and the late Hon. Robert Lillard, a distinguished advocate, jurist and member of the NLBA.
