Since MALDEF’s founding, the civil rights organization has awarded scholarships to students who will further MALDEF’s mission of advancing the civil rights of the Latino community in the United States. In recent years, MALDEF has annually awarded 5-10 scholarships of $5,000 each. MALDEF’s Law School Scholarship Program is open to all law students currently enrolled at an accredited United States law school. Applicants are evaluated for their academic and extracurricular achievements, for their background and financial need, and, most importantly, for their demonstrated commitment to advancing Latino civil rights in their careers. MALDEF’s 2011-2012 Law School Scholarship Application is due Friday, December 16, 2011. Good luck!
