Since MALDEF's founding, it has been an organizational hallmark to
support the next generation of lawyers who will advance the civil rights
of the Latino community. MALDEF's Law School Scholarship Program awards
scholarships of varying amounts to several students each year based on
their commitment to serve the Latino community through law; their past
achievement and potential for achievement; and their financial need.
MALDEF's Law School Scholarship Application for the 2011-2012 school
year will be open to all law students who will be enrolled full-time
in an American-accredited law school in 2011-2012. The announcement of MALDEF's 2010 - 2011 Law School Scholarship will be made in the Sprint of 2011, while the application will be available in the Summer of 2011.
