Blustein, Shapiro, Frank & Barone, LLP now offering scholarship to legal students

Blustein, Shapiro, Frank & Barone, LLP has recently established a scholarship fund at the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan to support the needs of graduating high school seniors who are interested in pursuing a career in the legal field.


“I’ve been involved with the Community Foundation as a member of its Board of Directors for many years, and I have seen firsthand the profound impact that a Community Foundation-managed scholarship fund can have in the lives of local students. Given the important role that the legal system plays in our democracy, my partners and I thought establishing a legal scholarship through the Community Foundation would be a powerful way to give back to the community that has given us so much.”

-BSF&B Partner Richard Shapiro, currently 1st vice chairman of Community Foundation’s Board of Directors


The Blustein, Shapiro, Frank & Barone Scholarship Fund will award at least one $500 scholarship per year to a student graduating from Goshen, Middletown, or Pine Bush high schools. As the fund grows over time, the amount of the scholarship award and/or the number of available scholarships awarded each year is expected to increase.


“We all recognize that the increasing costs of education can create hardships that students struggle to overcome. We want to do our part to support those who have the potential to enrich our American judicial system. We hope others will join us in this endeavor by making contributions to the BSF&B Scholarship Fund.”

BSF&B Managing Partner Michael Blustein
