Every student deserves to rise up equally, especially if they desire to learn the law and one day lead.
Unfortunately, the costs of law school can be prohibitive, often before you even get in!
The LSAT exam fee is $200, and the required LSAC registration fee is $185. It costs another $185 to have your law school report generated through the LSAC service. The hidden fees quickly stack up.
This scholarship will support a current pre-law college student by helping to cover their law school application costs.
All first-gen college students planning on attending law school who come from minority backgrounds are eligible.

Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jan 18, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
