The Savannah 100 Foundation uses the law for social justice by public education and works to increase the pool of attorneys who share our vision of a fair and just society for all people.
Our signature program, the Judge Eugene H. Gadsden Memorial Scholarship, identifies and nurtures future leaders by awarding scholarships to promising Savannah/Low Country students who intend to become attorneys and to work for a future of decency, equality, and real social justice.
Our Gadsden Scholarship program memorializes the legal acumen and civic leadership of Judge Eugene H. Gadsden (1912-2000), Savannah’s first African- American Superior Court judge, who spearheaded the desegregation of Savannah’s public facilities and mentored countless attorneys.
The Gadsden Scholarship provides financial and mentoring support to promising Savannah/Low Country high school and college students who demonstrate academic achievement, community service/leadership, and intend to pursue a career in law. The program also prepares student for the rigorous law school mission process.
