Bay Area Minority Law Student Scholarship

Scholarship Sponsored by The Bar Association of San Francisco

Value: $10,000
Awards Available: 5
Deadline : May 31, 2024

Our scholarship program was established in 1998 in response to the passage of SP-1, the University of California Regents’ resolution to end affirmative action and race-based admissions at UC schools. In twenty-one years, we have awarded over 2 million dollars in scholarships to 110 students with scholarships that are generally $10,000 per year.

We have had many great success stories of past recipients who became associates with many top law firms, public interest offices, corporations and government entities including: Keker Van Nest & Peters; Morrison & Foerster; LuxBus America, San Mateo District Attorney’s Office, California Rural Legal Assistance Inc., Square, Worksafe Inc., and the U.S. Department of Justice.

One recipient clerked for a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, another clerked for the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California and a recent recipient is a Fulbright Scholar. In 2018, we celebrated our first scholarship recipient to be named a California Superior Court judge.

Applications are now open and the deadline to submit is 5/31/2024. Recipients will be selected in July. Please complete this application form no later than Friday, May 31, 2024 to be considered for the Bay Area Minority Law Student Scholarship program.
