The fund is in memory of Howard Fox, who was a member of the Berks County Bar Association and an attorney in the Public Defenders Office at the time of his accidental death.

Berks County Community Foundation shall make distributions from the fund to support a scholarship which will be presented annually at Law Day ceremonies held by the Berks County Bar Association for a deserving graduate of a Berks County, Pennsylvania, high school who will be entering an accredited law school to pursue a law degree, or who is already attending an accredited law school to pursue a law degree, and who demonstrates financial need, without discrimination to color, race, national origin or religion. Preference will be given to students entering their second year of law school; however, all applicants meeting the criteria are encouraged to apply. No descendants of Leonard Quittner or M. Robert Ullman may be a scholarship recipient.

Previous recipients of a scholarship from this fund may reapply in a future year – as long as they will still be in law school – and will be considered along with the other applicants. Previous recipients will not receive preferential treatment.

To be considered for this scholarship, apply between January 1st and March 1st. All applicants will be notified in May.
