Alumni and other friends of Tulane Law School have donated funds in honor of or in memory of individuals and families for the purpose of providing scholarship support to Tulane law students.  The scholarship funds listed below are used to assist eligible and deserving students with the cost of attending Tulane Law School.


Nathan G. and Charlotte H. Beard Learning-Chance Fund

This endowed scholarship fund was created in 2003 after the deaths of the donors in gratitude for the "learning chance" given Nathan G. Beard by Tulane and for the opportunity Mr. Beard's attendance provided him to meet Mrs. Charlotte H. Beard.  Mr. Beard graduated from Tulane Law School in 1949 and was a World War II veteran of the Navy and Army Air Corps.  He met Mrs. Beard while he was a law student and she was an assistant in the Tulane Law School library.  They married nearly 20 years later, and died within a week of each other in November 2002.  Mrs. Beard was a U.S. Navy Wave from 1945 to 1953.

The proceeds of the endowment are to be used for scholarship support of honorably discharged former members of the Armed Forces of the United States who show financial need, attend Tulane Law School, and continually satisfy the criteria of promise and patriotism.
