Paving the Way for Others: Liz Bower '01 Endows a $100,000 Need-Based Scholarship to Help Students Like Herself
Elizabeth J. “Liz” Bower ’01 is passionate about helping make Carolina Law’s life-changing experiences available to all students, particularly those for whom financial need is a concern.
“It’s important that those of us who have been successful because of our Carolina degrees assist others who are equally eager and hungry for a similar experience,” she says. “I believe at my core that everyone should have access to a good education — everyone. It shouldn’t matter what your socioeconomic background is. If you have proven yourself to have the intellectual capacity and curiosity, you should have the opportunity to attend a school like Carolina Law.”
To facilitate this, Liz and her husband Chris recently established the UNC School of Law Need-Based Scholarship endowment and committed $100,000 to it.
They hope that others who are equally passionate about access to education and Carolina Law’s public mission will contribute to the fund.
