Public Interest Fellowship Competition

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 the courts.
  • Creative projects not included within these guidelines will be considered.

If you have questions, please contact Jackie Shull-Gonzalez .


The Allen E. Broussard Scholarship Foundation awards $5,000 scholarships based on need to minority law students from the Bay Area and/or attending local law schools. The awards are made at the Law Day Luncheon, held each May. Applications are available at the Broussard Foundation website.
