AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION

Legal Opportunity Scholarship 

Deadline: April 6, 2018 

The American Bar Association (ABA) awards an annual Legal Opportunity Scholarship to first-year law students. The mission of the program is to encourage racial and ethnic minority students to apply to law school and to provide financial assistance to attend and completing law school. The ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship grants 20 incoming diverse law students with $15,000 of financial aid over the course of their three years in law school. Since its inception, 350 students from across the country have received the ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship!

The ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship Fund will award $5,000 of financial assistance annually to each scholarship recipient attending an ABA-accredited law school.  An award made to an entering first-year student may be renewable for two additional years, resulting in financial assistance totaling $15,000 during his or her time in law school.  Although each recipient will need to

reapply for the scholarship in his or her second and third year, the expectation is that the scholarship will be renewed each year if satisfactory performance in law school has been achieved, the student is otherwise eligible, and funding is available.

 

In addition to whether the applicant is a member of a racial and/or ethnic minority that has been underrepresented in the legal profession, the applicant’s financial need; personal, family, and educational background; personal statement; and participation in community service activities will be considered in selecting the recipients of the ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarships.  It is important for every applicant to complete all portions of the application.  Financial information for the applicant and his or her parents is required to evaluate the applicant’s financial need.  A committee of ABA members will select the recipients.  The decisions of the committee are final.

 

Requirements for Eligibility

To be eligible to receive an ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship, an applicant must meet all of the following requirements:

 

  1. The applicant must be an entering, first-year law student in academic year 2018
  2. Only students beginning law school in this academic year will be eligible for a scholarship.  Law students who have completed one or more semesters or years of law school are not eligible. 
  3. Applicants who are part-time law students also must be starting law school in this academic year to be eligible.
  4. At the time of submission of the application, the applicant must have achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 (on a 4.0 grading scale) at his or her undergraduate institution.  If the applicant has not completed his or her undergraduate degree at the time the application is submitted, he or she must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 (on a 4.0 grading scale) as of the most recent completed semester.
  5. The applicant must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States of America.  Students who are citizens and residents of a foreign country, even if they plan to attend law school in the United States, are not eligible to apply.
  6. Before receiving scholarship funds, recipients will be required to demonstrate admission to and plans to enroll at an ABA-accredited law school.  Because of the deadline for submitting applications the applicant will have applied to law schools, but may not yet have been admitted to law school.  If the applicant is selected to receive an ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship, he or she will be required to demonstrate admission to and plans to enroll at an ABA-accredited law school before receiving scholarship funds.  Students who do not enroll or who leave law school after being admitted will be required to return all or a proportional amount of scholarship funds.
