Established in 1991, the Gilbert I. Low Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Law supports deserving students in The University of Texas School of Law. Created by Gilbert “Buddy” Low, the endowment offers support to students based on financial need or academic merit, with preference given to student editors of the Texas Law Review.
