Named Scholarship Reception

The Named Scholarship Reception is an annual celebration of the Denver Law scholarship program. The event occurs on the last Thursday of January at the Sturm College of Law Frank J. Ricketson, Jr. Forum and is a wonderful opportunity for scholarship donors to connect with the current recipient(s) of their scholarship in a causal environment.

It is incredibly meaningful for students to understand the story behind their scholarship and to meet those individuals who are helping to support their legal education. The event provides students with an opportunity to thank their benefactors personally, network within the Denver legal community, and create new professional friendships. Similarly, our donors enjoy meeting and hearing the stories behind the impressive students who carry on the legacy of their scholarship. The event gives them an opportunity to get a first-hand look at how their philanthropy is being used to benefit talented and deserving student scholars. The relationships formed at this event often carry on far beyond the event itself.

If you are a scholarship donor or currently serve as an interested party to a scholarship fund and cannot attend the reception, but would like to connect with the current recipient of your scholarship, please contact Patti Marks at 303.871.2263 or It would be our pleasure to set up a private meeting opportunity.

If you have questions about the Named Scholarship Reception, or are interested in creating your own scholarship or contributing to an existing scholarship at the Sturm College of Law, please contact Patti Marks, at or (303) 871-2263.
