The Latinx Rights Scholarship is awarded to students who plan to pursue careers in public interest law. Scholars are selected in a competitive process based on demonstrated commitment to public service, academic achievement, and leadership ability. Scholars must spend two summers at a public interest organization and at least two years post-graduation (or at the completion of a judicial clerkship) in public interest work. Scholarship recipients should work at organizations that meet the legal needs of the Latinx community and other marginalized groups. Scholars will receive assistance in finding organizations that meet the parameters of this agreement. If a recipient fails to honor this postgraduate commitment, he or she must repay the scholarship.
Individuals of any race, ethnicity, gender identity, disability status, and sexual orientation are encouraged to apply.
