Daemen College student Isabella Acosta is one of only five students from across the U.S. selected to receive a scholarship from Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX), the national honor society for paralegal and legal studies.

Acosta is the first paralegal studies major at Daemen to receive the $500 scholarship, which is awarded to students attending colleges with LEX chapters. Her selection for the scholarship was based on her essay submission, which will be published in The Paralegal Educator, a national publication for paralegal educators and students.

“We are proud to have Isabella chosen for this national scholarship,” said Margaret Phillips, director and assistant professor of paralegal studies. “She is an oustanding student who has exceptional promise to go far in the paralegal profession.”

As a LEX Scholarship recipient, Acosta will have the opportunity to attend the 37th annual National American Association for Paralegal Education (AAfPE) Conference being held this fall in Newport, R.I.

Acosta, a Buffalo resident, is a Dean’s List student and a member of the Daemen LEX Chapter and the Paralegal Studies Club.
