In a May 7, 2020 post, Boston University spotlighted Seeger Weiss partner Jennifer Scullion—a graduate of BU’s College of Arts and Sciences—for establishing the Scullion Fund for Emergency Assistance at her alma mater.

The post reads, in part:

Scullion came to BU as a Trustee Scholar, and she knew she had to make every penny count. She also knew that what might seem like a small problem to another student—suddenly needing to buy an expensive textbook, say, or take an unplanned trip home—could wreck her budget.

“From my own personal experience, when things came up unexpectedly it was particularly problematic,” she says. “I know that kind of pressure.”

That’s why, now that she’s a successful lawyer, Scullion decided to establish the Scullion Fund for Emergency Assistance at the College of Arts & Sciences. As a former scholarship student herself, she recognizes the value of traditional financial aid, but she also knows it isn’t always enough.
