Robert, Aimee & Rosalie Asher Scholarship
This scholarship was established in 2003 through the estate of the late Rosalie Asher, a 1940 Pacific McGeorge graduate. Her primary reason for establishing the scholarship was to honor her father. He wanted to attend law school but had to work and couldn't afford to go. Through this scholarship fund, Ms. Asher wants to make available to other law school hopefuls the opportunity that was denied her father. The scholarship is named for Ms. Asher's parents and herself. The only criterion is that the applicant be a first-year student with financial need.
