The Harry Klein and Shirley Klein Legal Scholarship Fund was established to honor Harry Klein and his wife Shirley. Mr. Klein spent his entire legal career in public service, particularly in support of nonprofit and not-for-profit organizations.
The goal of the Harry Klein and Shirley Klein Legal Scholarship Fund is to financially assist those who demonstrate a desire and ability to follow in the philosophy and humanity rendered by Harry Klein to social services agencies, nonprofit and not-for-profit organizations, the disadvantaged and the underprivileged.
The Michigan League for Public Policy is the fiduciary for this fund. The scholarship is available to one Master’s of Social Work (MSW) student each year and requires a written application that will be reviewed by the League. The amount of the scholarship depends on the interest earned on the principal. The scholarship amount for 2013-2014 is $1,000.
