Denise Carty-Bennia Memorial Fund

This fund awards annual stipends to four 3L students of color who are working to expand opportunities for people of color. Students apply with an essay about how they will honor and preserve Professor Carty-Bennia’s legacy.

Professor Denise Carty-Bennia was a highly successful attorney and tireless educator, advisor, mentor, and friend to countless Northeastern law students. She was dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence and the expansion of opportunities for people of color. Professor Carty-Bennia’s untimely death in 1990 created a void for many who knew her and her work.
