Every year, we award scholarships to assist
law students and recent graduates who are
interested in summer employment with Bay
Area non-profit organizations serving the
Latino community. The objective of the fellowships
is to enhance the delivery of legal services
to the Latino community. Scholarships are
awarded up to $5,000.
Application materials are available in
early Spring and normally require a project
description, statement of qualifications
and need, and a letter of recommendation.
Scholarships are awarded in areas where
there is a substantial Latino population
in need of legal services. The Association
gives priority to scholarship applicants
who meet at least one of the following objectives:
Projects to develop or expand legal
services in the areas of housing, employment,
discrimination, immigration and naturalization.
Projects which develop materials and
training to educate the Latino community
about their legal rights and to facilitate
their access to the justice system and
Creative projects not included within
these guidelines will be considered.
