Law students Rachel K. Berngartt, D.V.M. (Seattle University School of Law) and Connie Cheng, Ph.D. (University of Washington School of Law) were recently selected as the recipients of Seed Intellectual Property Law Group’s Founders Scholarships for the 2017-2018 period.
In 2003, Seed IP Law Group created two scholarships to honor its founders, Richard W. Seed and Benjamin F. Berry. Seed IP Law Group’s Founders Scholarships are awarded annually to students at the University of Washington and Seattle University Schools of Law. Seed IP seeks to recognize outstanding students who have a keen interest in the field of intellectual property law and who also have an undergraduate degree that qualifies him/her to sit for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Patent Bar Exam. “We think it’s very important to train the next generation of intellectual property attorneys so that we can continue to build on the legacy started by Ben Berry and Dick Seed,” says Kevin S. Costanza, Seed IP’s Managing Partner. “Only through strong support of higher education will our country continue to be a leader in the world.”
Both recipients attended an evening reception at the office of Seed IP Law Group on April 18, 2018.
