Paralegal Scholarship

​​​PANO currently offers an annual scholarship to Paralegal Studies students enrolled at The University of Toledo.  The scholarship program is funded by PANO and administered by The University of Toledo Foundation.  As of 2017, PANO has awarded  19  scholarships to UT Paralegal Studies students.

The partnership PANO forged with The University of Toledo was a result of a mutual commitment to educational excellence for students enrolled in The University of Toledo Paralegal Studies Program (the “Program”).  In keeping with the goal of high educational standards, the Program is approved by the American Bar Association.  In the January 2005 issue of Legal Assistant Today (now called Paralegal Today), the leading publication for paralegals and paralegal programs in the United States, the Program was recognized as one of six “Unique Paralegal Programs” that go beyond basic paralegal education.  This national recognition reflects and confirms the high standards of the Program which prepares students to work in a legal environment under the direct supervision of an attorney.  In addition to offering a two-year associate degree and a four-year Bachelor of Science degree, the Program offers a post-baccalaureate certificate and a nurse paralegal certificate.











 
To further our educational goal and our commitment to the Program, on July 30, 2005, PANO entered into an Endowment Agreement with The University of Toledo Foundation.  PANO’s Scholarship Committee developed a protocol for funding an endowed scholarship at UT and fundraising began in late 2005.

The primary benefits of the PANO Endowed Fund include: 

  • Contributions are tax-deductible for individual donors; and

  • Contributions are pooled with other University of Toledo endowed funds for greater earning potential



Maintaining the highest quality education for paralegals is important not only to the students enrolled in the Program, but to the lawyers, law firms, corporations, and government entities employing the students after graduation.  That is why we are asking for your support in funding the PANO Endowed Fund.  A contribution from you affirms your commitment to the quality education of paralegals in Northwest Ohio.  A contribution from you also ensures that deserving Paralegal Studies students at The University of Toledo will receive an annual scholarship.













Please support the commitment PANO has made toward educational excellence for the paralegal profession by making your tax-deductible donation today.

“KNOWING THAT THE TALA SCHOLARSHIP WAS AVAILABLE WAS... AN ADDED INCENTIVE FOR ME TO WORK TOWARDS THE HIGHEST ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE POSSIBLE.                                                           
IT ACQUAINTED ME WITH OTHER LOCAL PARALEGALS AND THE ORGANIZATION THAT  ENCOURAGES PROFESSIONALISM IN THE PARALEGAL FIELD...”
