Well, Michigan's stipend is just $7500 for the first summer, rather than annual. But then again, $7500 all at once is just better than $1000 per year.

Thanks!  Updated and title changed, as well.

Kentucky offers the Ashland scholarship for in-state students... totals $17,000 a year.  Only one is offered annually.  Current in-state tuition is something like $13,500. 

To maintain, you have to stay in good standing (2.0 GPA or higher).

Thanks!  According to KY's website, the scholarship is now at $15K (or their website is out of date).  The ABA indicates resident tuition is about $14K, so I estimated a stipend amount of $1K.

Also, http://www.hattonsumners.org/scholarships.htm says Sumners requires top 1/3 for renewal at both schools.

Website is out of date.. I noticed that, too.  However, I can say with certainty that the scholly (at least for me, anyway) is currently $17k.

By the way, this thread was a good idea... it may help a lot of people in the future.
