Delaware Law Student selected for prestigious Ambro Fellowship Award
Maria Kotsiras, a second-year student at Widener University Delaware Law School, was selected recently for the Honorable Thomas L. Ambro Fellowship for 2020. This prestigious fellowship is awarded each year to a law student applicant chosen from law schools nationwide. The award pays a $6000 stipend to the student recipient, funded by the Delaware Bankruptcy Inn of Court, for an eight-week summer internship with the judges of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
The recipient is accountable to the Chief Judge (or his chambers designee) for assignments, scheduling and hours. The selection criteria include that the student is intelligent, honest and hard-working, and has an interest in practicing commercial or bankruptcy law in Delaware. Maria will be presented with the Ambro Fellowship Award at a formal ceremony in Philadelphia in June.
Maria is a dean’s honors student at Delaware Law, a member of the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law, and a First State Merit Scholar. She is a cum laude graduate of St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she majored in political science. She presently works at Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin, P.C., as a law clerk where she researches and analyzes case and statutory law to draft legal memoranda.
