The Justice & Diversity Center: Bay Area Minority Law Student Scholarship Program
Bay Area Minority Law Student Scholarship Program
The 2013 scholarship application deadline has passed.
The 2014 Bay Area Minority Scholarship application will be posted in early Spring 2014.
Thank you for your interest and we hope you will get involved with our other diversity pipeline programs and events.
Our scholarship program was established in 1998 to reaffirm a commitment to diversity in legal education and the legal profession.
Most scholarships involve a substantial three-year commitment to worthy qualified students. The vast majority of scholarships awarded are $10,000 yearly.
This program was created in response to the passage of SP-1, the University of California Regent's resolution to end affirmative action and race-based admissions at UC Schools.
Eighty scholarships and 1.5 million dollars have been awarded to date!
