Law school is an expensive and extensive commitment that requires intense work and high costs. 

Unfortunately, Black students are still underrepresented in law, with little progress being made in the last decade. In 2011, only 4.8% of attorneys were Black, and this figure has slightly decreased to just 4.7% in 2021.

This scholarship seeks to support a Black law student in New York to help with the costs of law school.

Any Black law student in New York who is committed to practicing law may apply for this scholarship, but first-generation students who are members of the Black Law Student Association are preferred.

To apply, tell us what inspired you to go to law school and how your background has shaped you.
